SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETDATA, void *pointer);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer that will be untouched by libcurl and passed as the first argument in the
       opensocket callback set with CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETFUNCTION(3).

DEFAULT

       The default value of this parameter is NULL.

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       /* make libcurl use the already established socket 'sockfd' */

       static curl_socket_t opensocket(void *clientp,
                                       curlsocktype purpose,
                                       struct curl_sockaddr *address)
       {
         curl_socket_t sockfd;
         sockfd = *(curl_socket_t *)clientp;
         /* the actual externally set socket is passed in via the OPENSOCKETDATA
            option */
         return sockfd;
       }

       static int sockopt_callback(void *clientp, curl_socket_t curlfd,
                                   curlsocktype purpose)
       {
         /* This return code was added in libcurl 7.21.5 */
         return CURL_SOCKOPT_ALREADY_CONNECTED;
       }

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         /* libcurl will internally think that you connect to the host
          * and port that you specify in the URL option. */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://99.99.99.99:9999");
         /* call this function to get a socket */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETFUNCTION, opensocket);
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETDATA, &sockfd);

         /* call this function to set options for the socket */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SOCKOPTFUNCTION, sockopt_callback);

         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
