"standalone executable" as in 'curl' the command line tool?

"this code" ? You mean the code you have in the "standalone executable" ?

So, what's the difference between the "standalone executable" and the "shared
library" ?

Does it work when you use curl the tool to do this?

If so, do you curl_global_init() properly?

If so, did you need -3 or -2 to the command line tool for this to work?

If not, we might need to see some actual code on how you do this to perhaps
spot why this doesn't work...
