CURLcode  curl_easy_getinfo(CURL  *handle,  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, long
*nump);

Description

CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)   curl_easy_getinfo options  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS(3)



NAME
       CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS - get number of created connections

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode  curl_easy_getinfo(CURL  *handle,  CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, long
       *nump);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a long to receive how many  new  connections  libcurl
       had  to  create  to  achieve the previous transfer (only the successful
       connects are counted).  Combined  with  CURLINFO_REDIRECT_COUNT(3)  you
       are  able  to  know how many times libcurl successfully reused existing
       connection(s)   or   not.     See    the    connection    options    of
       curl_easy_setopt(3) to see how libcurl tries to make persistent connec-
       tions to save time.

PROTOCOLS
       All

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         CURLcode res;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(res == CURLE_OK) {
           long connects;
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_NUM_CONNECTS, &connects);
           if(res)
             printf("It needed %d connects\n", connects);
         }
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
