CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS(3)	   curl_easy_setopt options	  CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS - maximum number of redirects allowed

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	  curl_easy_setopt(CURL	  *handle,   CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS,	  long
       amount);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long. The	set number will	be the redirection  limit  amount.  If
       that many redirections have been	followed, the next redirect will cause
       an error	(CURLE_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS). This option	only  makes  sense  if
       the CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3) is	used at	the same time.

       Setting the limit to 0 will make	libcurl	refuse any redirect.

       Set it to -1 for	an infinite number of redirects.

DEFAULT
       -1, unlimited

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP(S)

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

	 /* enable redirect following */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION,	1L);

	 /* allow three	redirects */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 3L);

	 /* Perform the	request	*/
	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Along with HTTP

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