NAME

       curl_mime_init - create a mime handle

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       curl_mime * curl_mime_init(CURL * easy_handle);

DESCRIPTION

       curl_mime_init(3)  creates a handle to a new empty mime structure intended to be used with
       easy_handle. This mime structure can be subsequently  filled  using  the  mime  API,  then
       attached  to  easy_handle  using  option  CURLOPT_MIMEPOST(3) within a curl_easy_setopt(3)
       call.

       Using a mime handle is the recommended way to post an HTTP form, format and send a  multi-
       part e-mail with SMTP or upload such an e-mail to an IMAP server.

AVAILABILITY

       As long as at least one of HTTP, SMTP or IMAP is enabled. Added in 7.56.0.

RETURN VALUE

       A mime struct handle, or NULL upon failure.

EXAMPLE

        CURL *easy = curl_easy_init();
        curl_mime *mime;
        curl_mimepart *part;

        /* Build an HTTP form with a single field named "data", */
        mime = curl_mime_init(easy);
        part = curl_mime_addpart(mime);
        curl_mime_data(part, "This is the field data", CURL_ZERO_TERMINATED);
        curl_mime_name(part, "data");

        /* Post and send it. */
        curl_easy_setopt(easy, CURLOPT_MIMEPOST, mime);
        curl_easy_setopt(easy, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
        curl_easy_perform(easy);

        /* Clean-up. */
        curl_easy_cleanup(easy);
        curl_mime_free(mime);
