       curl_easy_perform - Perform a file transfer

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_perform(CURL *easy_handle);

       Invoke	 this	function   after   curl_easy_init(3)   and   all   the
       curl_easy_setopt(3) calls are made, and will perform  the  transfer  as
       described  in  the options. It must be called with the same easy_handle
       as input as the curl_easy_init(3) call returned.

       curl_easy_perform(3) performs the entire request in a  blocking	manner
       and  returns when done, or if it failed. For non-blocking behavior, see

       You can do any amount of calls to curl_easy_perform(3) while using  the
       same easy_handle. If you intend to transfer more than one file, you are
       even encouraged to do so. libcurl will then attempt to re-use the  same
       connection  for	the  following	transfers,  thus making the operations
       faster, less CPU intense and using less network	resources.  Just  note
       that  you  will	have to use curl_easy_setopt(3) between the invokes to
       set options for the following curl_easy_perform.

       You must never call this function simultaneously from two places	 using
       the  same easy_handle. Let the function return first before invoking it
       another time. If you want parallel transfers, you must use several curl

       While  the easy_handle is added to a multi handle, it cannot be used by

       CURLE_OK (0) means everything was ok, non-zero means an error  occurred
       as <curl/curl.h> defines - see libcurl-errors(3). If the CURLOPT_ERRORā€
       BUFFER was set with curl_easy_setopt(3) there will be a readable	 error
       message in the error buffer when non-zero is returned.
