NAME
       CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE - make connection get closed at once after use

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode   curl_easy_setopt(CURL  *handle,  CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE,  long
       close);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long. Set close to 1 to make libcurl explicitly close  the  con-
       nection  when  done with the transfer. Normally, libcurl keeps all con-
       nections alive when done with one transfer in  case  a  succeeding  one
       follows  that can re-use them.  This option should be used with caution
       and only if you understand what it does as it can seriously impact per-
       formance.

       Set  to  0  to have libcurl keep the connection open for possible later
       re-use (default behavior).

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS
       Most

EXAMPLE
       {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE, 1L);
         curl_easy_perform(curl);

         /* this second transfer may not reuse the same connection */
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Always

RETURN VALUE
       Returns CURLE_OK
