CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE(3)   curl_easy_setopt options   CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE - size of POST data pointed to

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_setopt(CURL	*handle,  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE,  long
       size);

DESCRIPTION
       If you want to post data	to the server  without	having	libcurl	 do  a
       strlen()	 to measure the	data size, this	option must be used. When this
       option is used you can post  fully  binary  data,  which	 otherwise  is
       likely  to  fail.  If  this  size  is  set  to -1, the library will use
       strlen()	to get the size.

       If you post more	than 2GB, use CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE_LARGE(3).

DEFAULT
       -1

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 const char *data = "data to send";

	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

	 /* size of the	POST data */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE, (long) strlen(data));

	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, data);

	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Along with HTTP

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