NAME

       CURLOPT_SHARE - specify share handle to use

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SHARE, CURLSH *share);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a share handle as a parameter. The share handle must have been created by a previous
       call to curl_share_init(3). Setting this option, will make this curl handle use  the  data
       from  the  shared  handle instead of keeping the data to itself. This enables several curl
       handles to share data. If the curl handles are used simultaneously  in  multiple  threads,
       you  MUST  use  the  locking  methods  in  the  share handle. See curl_share_setopt(3) for
       details.

       If you add a share that is set to share cookies, your easy handle  will  use  that  cookie
       cache  and  get the cookie engine enabled. If you unshare an object that was using cookies
       (or change to another object that doesn't share cookies), the easy  handle  will  get  its
       cookie engine disabled.

       Data  that the share object is not set to share will be dealt with the usual way, as if no
       share was used.

       Set this option to NULL again to stop using that share object.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       CURL *curl2 = curl_easy_init(); /* a second handle */
       if(curl) {
         CURLSH *shobject = curl_share_init();
         curl_share_setopt(shobject, CURLSHOPT_SHARE, CURL_LOCK_DATA_COOKIE);

         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SHARE, shobject);
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);

         /* the second handle shares cookies from the first */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl2, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/second");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl2, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl2, CURLOPT_SHARE, shobject);
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl2);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl2);

         curl_share_cleanup(shobject);
       }
