NAME

       curl_version_info - returns run-time libcurl version info

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       curl_version_info_data *curl_version_info( CURLversion type);

DESCRIPTION

       Returns  a  pointer to a filled in struct with information about various run-time features
       in libcurl. type should be set to the version of this functionality by the time you  write
       your  program.  This  way,  libcurl  will  always return a proper struct that your program
       understands, while programs in the future might get a  different  struct.  CURLVERSION_NOW
       will be the most recent one for the library you have installed:

               data = curl_version_info(CURLVERSION_NOW);

       Applications  should  use  this  information to judge if things are possible to do or not,
       instead of using compile-time checks, as dynamic/DLL libraries can be changed  independent
       of applications.

       The curl_version_info_data struct looks like this

       typedef struct {
         CURLversion age;          /* see description below */

         /* when 'age' is 0 or higher, the members below also exist: */
         const char *version;      /* human readable string */
         unsigned int version_num; /* numeric representation */
         const char *host;         /* human readable string */
         int features;             /* bitmask, see below */
         char *ssl_version;        /* human readable string */
         long ssl_version_num;     /* not used, always zero */
         const char *libz_version; /* human readable string */
         const char **protocols;   /* list of protocols */

         /* when 'age' is 1 or higher, the members below also exist: */
         const char *ares;         /* human readable string */
         int ares_num;             /* number */

         /* when 'age' is 2 or higher, the member below also exists: */
         const char *libidn;       /* human readable string */

         /* when 'age' is 3 or higher, the members below also exist: */
         int iconv_ver_num;       /* '_libiconv_version' if iconv support enabled */

         const char *libssh_version; /* human readable string */

       } curl_version_info_data;

       age  describes  what  the age of this struct is. The number depends on how new the libcurl
       you're using is. You are however guaranteed to get a  struct  that  you  have  a  matching
       struct for in the header, as you tell libcurl your "age" with the input argument.

       version is just an ascii string for the libcurl version.

       version_num  is  a  24 bit number created like this: <8 bits major number> | <8 bits minor
       number> | <8 bits patch number>. Version 7.9.8 is therefore returned as 0x070908.

       host is an ascii string showing what host information that this libcurl was built for.  As
       discovered by a configure script or set by the build environment.

       features can have none, one or more bits set, and the currently defined bits are:

              CURL_VERSION_IPV6
                     supports IPv6

              CURL_VERSION_KERBEROS4
                     supports kerberos4 (when using FTP)

              CURL_VERSION_SSL
                     supports SSL (HTTPS/FTPS) (Added in 7.10)

              CURL_VERSION_LIBZ
                     supports HTTP deflate using libz (Added in 7.10)

              CURL_VERSION_NTLM
                     supports HTTP NTLM (added in 7.10.6)

              CURL_VERSION_GSSNEGOTIATE
                     supports HTTP GSS-Negotiate (added in 7.10.6)

              CURL_VERSION_DEBUG
                     libcurl was built with debug capabilities (added in 7.10.6)

              CURL_VERSION_CURLDEBUG
                     libcurl was built with memory tracking debug capabilities. This is mainly of
                     interest for libcurl hackers. (added in 7.19.6)

              CURL_VERSION_ASYNCHDNS
                     libcurl was built with support for asynchronous name lookups,  which  allows
                     more exact timeouts (even on Windows) and less blocking when using the multi
                     interface. (added in 7.10.7)

              CURL_VERSION_SPNEGO
                     libcurl was  built  with  support  for  SPNEGO  authentication  (Simple  and
                     Protected  GSS-API  Negotiation  Mechanism,  defined in RFC 2478.) (added in
                     7.10.8)

              CURL_VERSION_LARGEFILE
                     libcurl was built with support for large files. (Added in 7.11.1)

              CURL_VERSION_IDN
                     libcurl was built with support for IDNA,  domain  names  with  international
                     letters. (Added in 7.12.0)

              CURL_VERSION_SSPI
                     libcurl  was  built with support for SSPI. This is only available on Windows
                     and makes libcurl use Windows-provided functions for NTLM authentication. It
                     also  allows libcurl to use the current user and the current user's password
                     without the app having to pass them on. (Added in 7.13.2)

              CURL_VERSION_CONV
                     libcurl was built with support for character conversions, as provided by the
                     CURLOPT_CONV_* callbacks. (Added in 7.15.4)

              CURL_VERSION_TLSAUTH_SRP
                     libcurl was built with support for TLS-SRP. (Added in 7.21.4)

              CURL_VERSION_NTLM_WB
                     libcurl  was  built  with  support  for NTLM delegation to a winbind helper.
                     (Added in 7.22.0)
       ssl_version is an ASCII string for the  OpenSSL  version  used.  If  libcurl  has  no  SSL
       support, this is NULL.

       ssl_version_num  is the numerical OpenSSL version value as defined by the OpenSSL project.
       If libcurl has no SSL support, this is 0.

       libz_version is an ASCII string (there is no numerical version). If libcurl  has  no  libz
       support, this is NULL.

       protocols is a pointer to an array of char * pointers, containing the names protocols that
       libcurl supports (using lowercase letters). The protocol names are the same  as  would  be
       used in URLs. The array is terminated by a NULL entry.

RETURN VALUE

       A pointer to a curl_version_info_data struct.
