curl_multi_cleanup - close a multi session

Name

curl_multi_cleanup - close down a multi session

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>
 
CURLMcode curl_multi_cleanup(CURLM *multi_handle);

Description

Cleans up and removes a whole multi stack. It does not free or touch any individual easy handles in any way - they still need to be closed individually, using the usual curl_easy_cleanup way. The order of cleaning up should be:

1 - curl_multi_remove_handle before any easy handles are cleaned up

2 - curl_easy_cleanup can now be called independently since the easy handle is no longer connected to the multi handle

3 - curl_multi_cleanup should be called when all easy handles are removed

Passing in a NULL pointer in multi_handle will make this function return CURLM_BAD_HANDLE immediately with no other action.

Example

 /* when the multi transfer is done ... */
 
 /* remove all easy handles, then: */
 curl_multi_cleanup(multi_handle);

Availability

Added in 7.9.6

Return value

CURLMcode type, general libcurl multi interface error code. On success, CURLM_OK is returned.
