Description

curl_easy_setopt options                         CURLOPT_CHUNK_BGN_FUNCTION(3)



NAME
       CURLOPT_CHUNK_BGN_FUNCTION  - callback before a transfer with FTP wild-
       cardmatch

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       long chunk_bgn_callback(const void *transfer_info, void *ptr,
                               int remains);

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CHUNK_BGN_FUNCTION,
                                 chunk_bgn_callback);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to your callback function, which should match the proto-
       type shown above.

       This  callback  function  gets  called  by libcurl before a part of the
       stream is going to be transferred (if the transfer supports chunks).

       The transfer_info pointer will point to  a  struct  curl_fileinfo  with
       details about the file that is about to get transferred.

       This  callback makes sense only when using the CURLOPT_WILDCARDMATCH(3)
       option for now.

       The target of transfer_info parameter is a  "feature  depended"  struc-
       ture. For the FTP wildcard download, the target is curl_fileinfo struc-
       ture (see curl/curl.h).  The parameter ptr is a pointer given  by  CUR-
       LOPT_CHUNK_DATA(3).  The  parameter  remains  contains number of chunks
       remaining per the transfer. If the feature is not available, the param-
       eter has zero value.

       Return     CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_OK     if     everything     is    fine,
       CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_SKIP if you want to  skip  the  concrete  chunk  or
       CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_FAIL   to  tell  libcurl  to  stop  if  some  error
       occurred.

DEFAULT
       NULL

PROTOCOLS
       FTP

EXAMPLE
       static long file_is_coming(struct curl_fileinfo *finfo,
                                  struct callback_data *data,
                                  int remains)
       {
         printf("%3d %40s %10luB ", remains, finfo->filename,
                (unsigned long)finfo->size);

         switch(finfo->filetype) {
         case CURLFILETYPE_DIRECTORY:
           printf(" DIR\n");
           break;
         case CURLFILETYPE_FILE:
           printf("FILE ");
           break;
         default:
           printf("OTHER\n");
           break;
         }

         if(finfo->filetype == CURLFILETYPE_FILE) {
           /* do not transfer files >= 50B */
           if(finfo->size > 50) {
             printf("SKIPPED\n");
             return CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_SKIP;
           }

           data->output = fopen(finfo->filename, "wb");
           if(!data->output) {
             return CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_FAIL;
           }
         }

         return CURL_CHUNK_BGN_FUNC_OK;
       }

       int main()
       {
         /* data for callback */
         struct callback_data callback_info;

         /* callback is called before download of concrete file started */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CHUNK_BGN_FUNCTION, file_is_coming);
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CHUNK_DATA, &callback_info);
       }
