curl_multi_wakeup - wakes up a sleeping curl_multi_poll call


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


This function can be called from any thread and it wakes up a sleeping curl_multi_poll call that is currently (or is about to be) waiting for activity or a timeout.

If the function is called when there is no curl_multi_poll call, it causes the next call to return immediately.

Calling this function only guarantees to wake up the current (or the next if there is no current) curl_multi_poll call, which means it is possible that multiple calls to this function wake up the same waiting operation.

This function has no effect on curl_multi_wait calls.

CURLM *multi_handle;
