Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
CURL 2.6 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value

Path Native file path. C:\Documents\Test.Txt

Result

Returns "OK" on success or error message.

Description

Creates output file for writing header text.
Header messages are written to file if you use this functions and header text are always collected for calling CURL.GetHeaderAsText after the transfer. This can be useful as you can have your FileMaker solution write a copy of headers in temporary file. If your client has problems, you can simply read headers from last transfer. If creation of the file fails, you get an error message back, but still your transfer will probably succeed.
Do not call this method while a transfer is running.

This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
For Server be aware that server has limited permissions and may not be able to access all files on a computer.

Examples

Write copy of header texts to a file into temp folder on Mac:

MBS( "CURL.CreateHeaderOutputFile"; $curl; "/tmp/LastHeaders.txt" )
