NAME
       CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT - force a new connection to be used

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode  curl_easy_setopt(CURL  *handle,  CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT,  long
       fresh);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long. Set to 1 to make the next transfer use a new (fresh)  con-
       nection  by  force  instead  of trying to re-use an existing one.  This
       option should be used with caution and only if you understand  what  it
       does as it may seriously impact performance.

       Related  functionality  is CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE(3) which makes sure the
       connection is closed after use so that it won't be re-used.

       Set fresh to 0 to have libcurl attempt re-using an existing  connection
       (default behavior).

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS
       Most

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

         /* this transfer must use a new connection, not reuse an existing */
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }
