CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL(3)   curl_easy_getinfo options  CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL(3)

NAME
       CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL - get the URL a redirect would go to

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_getinfo(CURL	 *handle,  CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, char
       **urlp);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a char	pointer	to receive the URL  a  redirect	 would
       take  you  to  if  you would enable CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3). This can
       come very handy if you think using the built-in libcurl redirect	 logic
       isn't  good  enough  for	you but	you would still	prefer to avoid	imple-
       menting all the magic of	figuring out the new URL.

       This URL	is also	set if the CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS(3)	limit prevented	a  re-
       direct to happen	(since 7.54.1).

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 CURLcode res;
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
	 res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
	 if(res	== CURLE_OK) {
	   char	*url = NULL;
	   curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, &url);
	   if(url)
	     printf("Redirect to: %s\n", url);
	 }
	 curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in	7.18.2

RETURN VALUE
       Returns	CURLE_OK  if the option	is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION
       if not.
