CURL 5.2 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes

MBS( "CURL.SetOptionTransferEncoding"; Handle; Param )

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
Handle The CURL session handle. $curl
Param The new setting. 1

Result

Returns OK or error.

Description

Ask for HTTP Transfer Encoding.
Pass 1 to enable or 0 to disable.
Adds a request for compressed Transfer Encoding in the outgoing HTTP request. If the server supports this and so desires, it can respond with the HTTP response sent using a compressed Transfer-Encoding that will be automatically uncompressed by libcurl on reception.
Transfer-Encoding differs slightly from the Content-Encoding you ask for with CURL.SetOptionAcceptEncoding in that a Transfer-Encoding is strictly meant to be for the transfer and thus MUST be decoded before the data arrives in the client. Traditionally, Transfer-Encoding has been much less used and supported by both HTTP clients and HTTP servers.

Examples

Enable transfer encoding:

MBS( "CURL.SetOptionTransferEncoding"; $curl; 1 )
