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.

       Enabling	this option means asking for a download	but without a body.

DEFAULT
       0, the body is transferred

PROTOCOLS
       Most

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

	 /* get	us the resource	without	a body!	*/
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_NOBODY,	1L);

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