NAME

       CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING - ask for HTTP Transfer Encoding

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING, long enable);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass a long set to 1L to enable or 0 to disable.

       Adds  a  request  for  compressed  Transfer  Encoding in the outgoing HTTP request. If the
       server supports this and so desires, it can respond with the HTTP response  sent  using  a
       compressed  Transfer-Encoding  that  will  be  automatically  uncompressed  by  libcurl on
       reception.

       Transfer-Encoding  differs  slightly  from  the  Content-Encoding   you   ask   for   with
       CURLOPT_ACCEPT_ENCODING(3)  in  that  a  Transfer-Encoding is strictly meant to be for the
       transfer and thus MUST be decoded before the data arrives in  the  client.  Traditionally,
       Transfer-Encoding  has  been  much  less  used and supported by both HTTP clients and HTTP
       servers.
