NAME

       libcurl-easy - easy interface overview

DESCRIPTION

       When  using  libcurl's  "easy"  interface  you  init  your session and get a handle (often
       referred to as an "easy handle"), which you use as input to the easy  interface  functions
       you use. Use curl_easy_init(3) to get the handle.

       You  continue  by  setting  all  the  options  you want in the upcoming transfer, the most
       important among them is the URL itself (you can't transfer anything  without  a  specified
       URL  as  you  may have figured out yourself). You might want to set some callbacks as well
       that will be called from the library when data is available  etc.  curl_easy_setopt(3)  is
       used for all this.

       When  all  is  setup, you tell libcurl to perform the transfer using curl_easy_perform(3).
       It will then do the entire operation and won't return until it is  done  (successfully  or
       not).

       After the transfer has been made, you can set new options and make another transfer, or if
       you're done, cleanup the session by calling curl_easy_cleanup(3). If you  want  persistent
       connections,  you  don't  cleanup  immediately,  but  instead  run ahead and perform other
       transfers using the same easy handle.
