NAME

       CURLOPT_PIPEWAIT - wait for pipelining/multiplexing

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PIPEWAIT, long wait);

DESCRIPTION

       Set  wait to 1L to tell libcurl to prefer to wait for a connection to confirm or deny that
       it can do pipelining or multiplexing before continuing.

       When about to perform a new transfer that allows pipelining or multiplexing, libcurl  will
       check  for existing connections to re-use and pipeline on. If no such connection exists it
       will immediately continue and create a fresh new connection to use.

       By setting this option to 1 - and having  CURLMOPT_PIPELINING(3)  enabled  for  the  multi
       handle  this transfer is associated with - libcurl will instead wait for the connection to
       reveal if it is possible to  pipeline/multiplex  on  before  it  continues.  This  enables
       libcurl  to  much better keep the number of connections to a minimum when using pipelining
       or multiplexing protocols.

       The effect thus becomes that with this option set, libcurl prefers to wait and  re-use  an
       existing  connection  for  pipelining  rather  than  the  opposite:  prefer  to open a new
       connection rather than waiting.

       The waiting time is as long as it takes for the connection to get up and  for  libcurl  to
       get the necessary response back that informs it about its protocol and support level.
