CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)   curl_easy_getinfo options  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)

NAME
       CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS - get number of created connections

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_getinfo(CURL	 *handle,  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, long
       *nump);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a long	to receive how many  new  connections  libcurl
       had  to	create	to  achieve the	previous transfer (only	the successful
       connects	are counted).  Combined	 with  CURLINFO_REDIRECT_COUNT(3)  you
       are  able  to  know how many times libcurl successfully reused existing
       connection(s) or	not.  See  the	connection  options  of	 curl_easy_se-
       topt(3) to see how libcurl tries	to make	persistent connections to save
       time.

PROTOCOLS
       All

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 CURLcode res;
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION,	1L);
	 res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
	 if(res	== CURLE_OK) {
	   long	connects;
	   res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS,	&connects);
	   if(res)
	     printf("It	needed %d connects\n", connects);
	 }
	 curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in	7.12.3
