Sets the redirection limit.
If that many redirections have been followed, the next redirect will cause an error (CURLE_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS). This option only makes sense if the CURL.SetOptionFollowLocation is used at the same time. Added in 7.15.1: Setting the limit to 0 will make CURL refuse any redirect. Set it to -1 for an infinite number of redirects (which is the default)

See also MAXREDIRS option in CURL manual.


Allow up to three redirects:

Set Variable [$result; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionFollowLocation"; $curl; 1)]
Set Variable [$result; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionMaxRedirs"; $curl; 3)]
