NAME

       CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME_T - get the time until the file transfer start

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME_T, curl_off_t *timep);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer  to  a  curl_off_t to receive the time, in microseconds, it took from the
       start until the file transfer is just about  to  begin.  This  includes  all  pre-transfer
       commands  and  negotiations  that  are specific to the particular protocol(s) involved. It
       does not involve the sending of the protocol- specific request that triggers a transfer.

       See also the TIMES overview in the curl_easy_getinfo(3) man page.

       All

EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_off_t pretransfer;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, url);
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(CURLE_OK == res) {
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME_T, &pretransfer);
           if(CURLE_OK == res) {
             printf("Time: %" CURL_FORMAT_CURL_OFF_T ".%06ld", pretransfer / 1000000,
                    (long)(pretransfer % 1000000));
           }
         }
         /* always cleanup */
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
