curl_easy_cleanup(3)		libcurl	Manual		  curl_easy_cleanup(3)

NAME
       curl_easy_cleanup - End a libcurl easy handle

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       void curl_easy_cleanup(CURL *handle);

DESCRIPTION
       This function must be the last function to call for an easy session. It
       is the opposite of the curl_easy_init(3)	function and  must  be	called
       with the	same handle as input that a curl_easy_init(3) call returned.

       This  might close all connections this handle has used and possibly has
       kept open until now - unless it was attached to a  multi	 handle	 while
       doing the transfers. Don't call this function if	you intend to transfer
       more files, re-using handles is a key to	good performance with libcurl.

       Occasionally you	may get	your  progress	callback  or  header  callback
       called from within curl_easy_cleanup(3) (if previously set for the han-
       dle using curl_easy_setopt(3)). Like if libcurl decides	to  shut  down
       the  connection	and  the  protocol  is	of a kind that requires	a com-
       mand/response sequence before disconnect. Examples  of  such  protocols
       are FTP,	POP3 and IMAP.

       Any  use	of the handle after this function has been called and have re-
       turned, is illegal. curl_easy_cleanup(3)	kills the handle and all  mem-
       ory associated with it!

       For  libcurl  versions before 7.17,: after you've called	this function,
       you can safely remove all the strings you've previously told libcurl to
       use, as it won't	use them anymore now.

RETURN VALUE
       None

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 CURLcode res;
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
	 res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
	 curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
