CURLOPT_XFERINFOFUNCTION(3)curl_easy_setopt optionsCURLOPT_XFERINFOFUNCTION(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_XFERINFOFUNCTION	- callback to progress meter function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       int progress_callback(void *clientp,
			     curl_off_t	dltotal,
			     curl_off_t	dlnow,
			     curl_off_t	ultotal,
			     curl_off_t	ulnow);

       CURLcode	  curl_easy_setopt(CURL	  *handle,   CURLOPT_XFERINFOFUNCTION,
       progress_callback);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to your callback function, which should match the	proto-
       type shown above.

       This function gets called by libcurl instead of its internal equivalent
       with a frequent interval. While data is being transferred  it  will  be
       called  very  frequently,  and during slow periods like when nothing is
       being transferred it can	slow down to about one call per	second.

       clientp is the pointer set with CURLOPT_XFERINFODATA(3),	it is not used
       by  libcurl  but	is only	passed along from the application to the call-
       back.

       The callback gets told how much data  libcurl  will  transfer  and  has
       transferred,  in	 number	of bytes. dltotal is the total number of bytes
       libcurl expects to download in this transfer. dlnow is  the  number  of
       bytes  downloaded  so far. ultotal is the total number of bytes libcurl
       expects to upload in this transfer. ulnow is the	number	of  bytes  up-
       loaded so far.

       Unknown/unused  argument	 values	 passed	to the callback	will be	set to
       zero (like if you only download data, the upload	size will  remain  0).
       Many  times the callback	will be	called one or more times first,	before
       it knows	the data sizes so a program must be made to handle that.

       Returning a non-zero value from this callback  will  cause  libcurl  to
       abort the transfer and return CURLE_ABORTED_BY_CALLBACK.

       If  you	transfer data with the multi interface,	this function will not
       be called during	periods	of idleness unless you	call  the  appropriate
       libcurl function	that performs transfers.

       CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS(3)  must  be set to 0	to make	this function actually
       get called.

DEFAULT
       By default, libcurl has	an  internal  progress	meter.	That's	rarely
       wanted by users.
