I'm looking at line 443 in my curl.h file from the 7.6.1 release. There's no
-> or . on that line. Can you show us how your line looks?

Besides, can't you use that error code "C2143" to lookup somewhere what it

BTW, if you already installed curl and libcurl, how come you're compiling

Then add an explicit cast, and make it use curl_easy_setopt() while you're at
it as that is what should be used:

   RETVAL = curl_easy_setopt(curl, (CURLoption)option, value);

Woa, I don't know this. Could it be some perl XS magic, anyone?
