curl_easy_cleanup(3)			  libcurl Manual		     curl_easy_cleanup(3)

NAME
       curl_easy_cleanup - End a libcurl easy session

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       void curl_easy_cleanup(CURL *handle);

DESCRIPTION
       This function must be the last function to call for an easy session. It is the opposite of
       the curl_easy_init(3) function and must be called with the same handle as input	that  the
       curl_easy_init call returned.

       This  will  effectively	close  all connections this handle has used and possibly has kept
       open until now. Don't call this function if you intend to transfer more files.

       Occasionally you may get your progress callback or  header  callback  called  from  within
       curl_easy_cleanup(3) (if previously set for the handle using curl_easy_setopt(3)). Like if
       libcurl decides to shut down the connection and the protocol is of a kind that requires	a
       command/response  sequence before disconnect. Examples of such protocols are FTP, POP3 and
       IMAP.

       Any uses of the handle after this function has been called and have returned, are illegal.
       This kills the handle and all memory associated with it!

       With  libcurl  versions prior to 7.17.: when you've called this, you can safely remove all
       the strings you've previously told libcurl to use, as it won't use them anymore now.

RETURN VALUE
       None
