CURLOPT_NOBODY(3)	   curl_easy_setopt options	     CURLOPT_NOBODY(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_NOBODY -	do the download	request	without	getting	the body

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NOBODY, long opt);

DESCRIPTION
       A long parameter	set to 1 tells libcurl to not include the body-part in
       the output when doing what would	otherwise be a download. For  HTTP(S),
       this makes libcurl do a HEAD request. For most other protocols it means
       just not	asking to transfer the body data.

       For HTTP	operations when	CURLOPT_NOBODY(3) has been set,	unsetting  the
       option  (with 0)	will make it a GET again - only	if the method is still
       set to be HEAD. The proper way to get back to a GET request is  to  set
       CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)  and	for  other methods, use	the POST ur UPLOAD op-
       tions.

       Enabling	CURLOPT_NOBODY(3) means	asking for a download without a	body.

       If you do a transfer with HTTP that involves a method other than	 HEAD,
       you  will  get a	body (unless the resource and server sends a zero byte
       body for	the specific URL you request).

DEFAULT
       0, the body is transferred
