CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE(3)                          curl_easy_setopt options

NAME

CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE - maximum file size allowed to download

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE, curl_off_t size);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a curl_off_t as parameter. This allows you to specify the maximum size (in bytes) of a file to download. If the file requested is found larger than this value, the transfer will not start and CURLE_FILESIZE_EXCEEDED will be returned. For protocols where the size is not known in advance (including FTP and HTTP) this option has no effect even if the file transfer ends up being larger than the given limit.

DEFAULT

None

PROTOCOLS

FTP, HTTP and MQTT

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { CURLcode ret; curl_off_t ridiculous = 1 << 48; curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/"); /* refuse to download if larger than ridiculous */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE, ridiculous); ret = curl_easy_perform(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.11.0

RETURN VALUE

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