NAME

       CURLOPT_PRIVATE - store a private pointer

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  void  *  as  parameter, pointing to data that should be associated with this curl
       handle.  The pointer can subsequently be retrieved  using  curl_easy_getinfo(3)  with  the
       CURLINFO_PRIVATE option. libcurl itself never does nothing with this data.

DEFAULT

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       struct private secrets;
       if(curl) {
         struct private *extracted;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

         /* store a pointer to our private struct */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PRIVATE, &secrets);

         curl_easy_perform(curl);

         /* we can extract the private pointer again too */
         curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_PRIVATE, &extracted);
       }
