Hello, Daniel :)
I'm Russian man, and my English is bad. Sorry.
I develop a multithread application on Linux platform using libcurl-7.10.2.
This library is fine. I have some questions; I didn't find answers for them
in curl documentations. Answer me, please.
1. How can I get info about socket connection (ip, port etc.) during the
transfer (downloading)? For example, in write_callback.
value on the fly? For example, in write_callback or progress_callback.
3. It is not clear for me from documentation: can I use these timeouts in a
stable way in my multithread application (with CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL)? If it is
not recommended then libcurl is useless for me :(
4. Has libcurl handle pthread-cancellation to abort a thread within curllib?
Since curl_perform is a long-time functiion, it is need. I see a way now:
progress_callback can return non-zero value if the cancellation is required.
Is it a right way?
Thank you in advance.
