NAME

       CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD - user name and password to use for proxy authentication

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, char *userpwd);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  char  *  as  parameter,  which  should  be  [user name]:[password] to use for the
       connection to the HTTP proxy. Both the name and the password will be  URL  decoded  before
       use, so to include for example a colon in the user name you should encode it as %3A. (This
       is different to how CURLOPT_USERPWD(3) is used - beware.)

       Use CURLOPT_PROXYAUTH(3) to specify the authentication method.

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       This is NULL by default.

PROTOCOLS

       Used with all protocols that can use a proxy

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://localhost:8080");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, "clark%20kent:superman");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Always

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  CURLE_OK  if   proxies   are   supported,   CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION   if   not,   or
       CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
