NAME

       curl_easy_perform - perform a blocking file transfer

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_perform(CURL *easy_handle);

DESCRIPTION

       Invoke  this  function  after  curl_easy_init(3) and all the curl_easy_setopt(3) calls are
       made, and will perform the transfer as described in the options. It must  be  called  with
       the same easy_handle as input as the curl_easy_init(3) call returned.

       curl_easy_perform(3)  performs  the  entire  request in a blocking manner and returns when
       done, or if it failed. For non-blocking behavior, see curl_multi_perform(3).

       You can do any amount of calls to curl_easy_perform(3) while using the  same  easy_handle.
       If  you  intend  to transfer more than one file, you are even encouraged to do so. libcurl
       will then attempt to re-use the same connection for the following transfers,  thus  making
       the  operations  faster, less CPU intense and using less network resources. Just note that
       you will have to use curl_easy_setopt(3) between  the  invokes  to  set  options  for  the
       following curl_easy_perform.

       You  must  never  call  this  function  simultaneously  from  two  places  using  the same
       easy_handle. Let the function return first before invoking it another time.  If  you  want
       parallel transfers, you must use several curl easy_handles.

       While   the   easy_handle   is   added   to   a   multi  handle,  it  cannot  be  used  by
       curl_easy_perform(3).

RETURN VALUE

       CURLE_OK (0) means everything was ok, non-zero means an error  occurred  as  <curl/curl.h>
       defines   -   see   libcurl-errors(3).   If   the   CURLOPT_ERRORBUFFER(3)  was  set  with
       curl_easy_setopt(3) there will be a readable error message in the error buffer  when  non-
       zero is returned.

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         CURLcode res;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
