Guidance on curl-multi

Hello CURL team,


I'm looking for guidance on what methods are best to use in my case. I have
a Windows (MSVC) application and I'm just looking to establish a
non-blocking threaded approach to sending simple POSTFIELDS:


To date I've been using the curl-easy blocking method as such:


curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL,");

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "sample=12&sample2=14");

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, curl_callback_func);


I went through the examples and the saw a few that have "sleep" functions in
them which would block. As I run with Windows TIMER functions I'm picturing
removing the for loops and having the CURL_MULTI_PERFORM function occur in
the OnTimer callback. Does CURL_MULTI_PERFORM non-block and return back
