NAME
       CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET - enable the PRET command

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode   curl_easy_setopt(CURL  *handle,  CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET,  long
       enable);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long. If the value is 1, it tells curl to send  a  PRET  command
       before  PASV  (and  EPSV).  Certain FTP servers, mainly drftpd, require
       this non-standard command for directory listings  as  well  as  up  and
       downloads  in PASV mode. Has no effect when using the active FTP trans-
       fers mode.

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS
       FTP

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/old-server/file.txt");

         /* a drftpd server, do it! */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET, 1L);

         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in 7.20.0

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