Thread enabled in what regard? libcurl is thread-safe on all modern operating
systems and I believe we can count AIX to one of them.

Sir ,
        thanks for reply.

I take this thing that by default curl is being compiled with support of multithreading.
But at the same time through thread disable flag in configure file one can compile curl without multihthreading support.
i want to test the libararies and bianries (curl version 7.18.1) on my AIX (5.3) machine that Curl is indeed with multithreading support.
so plz tell me any command/options through which ,it can be confirmed the threading status of CURL.
