NAME
       CURLINFO_SPEED_DOWNLOAD - get download speed

SYNOPSIS

       CURLcode  curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_SPEED_DOWNLOAD, dou-

         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

         /* Perform the request */
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         if(!res) {
           double speed;
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_SPEED_DOWNLOAD, &speed);
           if(!res) {
             printf("Download speed %.0f bytes/sec\n", ul);
           }
         }
       }
