NAME
       CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL - get the URL a redirect would go to

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode  curl_easy_getinfo(CURL  *handle,  CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, char
       **urlp);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a char pointer to receive the URL  a  redirect  would
       take  you  to  if  you would enable CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3). This can
       come very handy if you think using the built-in libcurl redirect  logic
       isn't  good  enough  for you but you would still prefer to avoid imple-
       menting all the magic of figuring out the new URL.

       This URL is also set if the CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS(3) limit prevented a  re-
       direct to happen (since 7.54.1).

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         CURLcode res;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(res == CURLE_OK) {
           char *url = NULL;
           curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, &url);
           if(url)
             printf("Redirect to: %s\n", url);
         }
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in 7.18.2

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