RE: How to detect end of headers?

Thanks for the suggestion. I turns out I need to parse some other headers anyway, so I'll do it in my HEADERFUNCTION callback.
On that subject, aside from the header callback, does libcurl provide any way to get arbitrary headers from the response headers? Something where I can pass a string to find, say "Cache-control", and it would return the value for the header?
