NAME

       curl_easy_duphandle - Clone a libcurl session handle

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURL *curl_easy_duphandle(CURL *handle);

DESCRIPTION

       This function will return a new curl handle, a duplicate, using all the options previously
       set in the input curl handle. Both handles can subsequently be used independently and they
       must both be freed with curl_easy_cleanup(3).

       All  strings  that  the  input  handle has been told to point to (as opposed to copy) with
       previous calls to curl_easy_setopt(3) using char * inputs, will be pointed to by  the  new
       handle  as  well.  You must therefore make sure to keep the data around until both handles
       have been cleaned up.

       The new handle will not inherit any state information, no connections, no SSL sessions and
       no cookies.

       Note  that  even in multi-threaded programs, this function must be called in a synchronous
       way, the input handle may not be in use when cloned.

RETURN VALUE

       If this function returns NULL, something went wrong and no valid handle was returned.
