NAME

       CURLOPT_PATH_AS_IS - do not handle dot dot sequences

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PATH_AS_IS, long leaveit);

DESCRIPTION

       Set  the  long leaveit to 1, to explicitly tell libcurl to not alter the given path before
       passing it on to the server.

       This instructs libcurl to NOT squash sequences of "/../" or "/./" that may  exist  in  the
       URL's path part and that is supposed to be removed according to RFC 3986 section 5.2.4.

       Some  server  implementations  are known to (erroneously) require the dot dot sequences to
       remain in the path and some clients want to pass these on  in  order  to  try  out  server
       implementations.

       By default libcurl will merge such sequences before using the path.

DEFAULT

       0

PROTOCOLS

         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PATH_AS_IS, 1L);

         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }
