NAME
       CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME - get the time until the file transfer start

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode   curl_easy_getinfo(CURL  *handle,  CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME,
       double *timep);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a double to receive the time,  in  seconds,  it  took
       from  the  start  until  the file transfer is just about to begin. This
       includes all pre-transfer commands and negotiations that  are  specific
       to the particular protocol(s) involved. It does not involve the sending
       of the protocol- specific request that triggers a transfer.

         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(CURLE_OK == res) {
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME, &pretransfer);
           if(CURLE_OK == res) {
             printf("Time: %.1f", pretransfer);
           }
