CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE(3)   curl_easy_getinfo options  CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE(3)

NAME
       CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE - get Content-Type

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_getinfo(CURL	 *handle,  CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE, char
       **ct);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a char	pointer	to receive  the	 content-type  of  the
       downloaded object. This is the value read from the Content-Type:	field.
       If you get NULL,	it means that the server didn't	send a valid  Content-
       Type header or that the protocol	used doesn't support this.

       The  ct pointer will be NULL or pointing	to private memory you MUST NOT
       free it - it gets freed when you	call curl_easy_cleanup(3) on the  cor-
       responding CURL handle.

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

	 res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

	 if(!res) {
	   /* extract the content-type */
	   char	*ct = NULL;
	   res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE,	&ct);
	   if(!res && ct) {
	     printf("Content-Type: %s\n", ct);
	   }
	 }
	 curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in	7.9.4
