CURLOPT_INFILESIZE(3)	   curl_easy_setopt options	 CURLOPT_INFILESIZE(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_INFILESIZE - set	size of	the input file to send off

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle,	CURLOPT_INFILESIZE, long file-
       size);

DESCRIPTION
       When uploading a	file to	a remote site, filesize	should be used to tell
       libcurl what the	expected size of the input file	is. This value must be
       passed as a long.  See  also  CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE(3)  for  sending
       files larger than 2GB.

       For  uploading using SCP, this option or	CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE(3) is
       mandatory.

       To unset	this value again, set it to -1.

       When sending emails using SMTP, this command can	be used	to specify the
       optional	SIZE parameter for the MAIL FROM command.

       This option does	not limit how much data	libcurl	will actually send, as
       that is controlled entirely by what  the	 read  callback	 returns,  but
       telling one value and sending a different amount	may lead to errors.

DEFAULT
       Unset

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();

	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_UPLOAD,	1L);

	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }
