CURLOPT_IGNORE_CONTENT_LENGcurl_easy_setopt opCURLOPT_IGNORE_CONTENT_LENGTH(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_IGNORE_CONTENT_LENGTH - ignore content length

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_IGNORE_CONTENT_LENGTH,
				 long ignore);

DESCRIPTION
       If  ignore  is  set to 1L, ignore the Content-Length header in the HTTP
       response	and ignore asking for or relying on it for FTP transfers.

       This is useful for HTTP with Apache 1.x	(and  similar  servers)	 which
       will  report  incorrect	content	 length	for files over 2 gigabytes. If
       this option is used,  curl  will	 not  be  able	to  accurately	report
       progress,  and  will  simply stop the download when the server ends the
       connection.

       It is also useful with FTP when for example the file is	growing	 while
       the  transfer is	in progress which otherwise will unconditionally cause
       libcurl to report error.

       Only use	this option if strictly	necessary.

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP

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

	 /* we know the	server is silly, ignore	content-length */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_IGNORE_CONTENT_LENGTH, 1L);

	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in	7.14.1.	Support	for FTP	added in 7.46.0.

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