curl_share_init - Create a shared object SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLSH *curl_share_init( ); DESCRIPTION
This function returns a CURLSH handle to be used as input to all the other share-functions, sometimes referred to as a share handle in some places in the documentation. This init call MUST have a corresponding call to curl_share_cleanup when all operations using the share are complete. This share handle is what you pass to curl using the CURLOPT_SHARE option with curl_easy_setopt(3), to make that specific curl handle use the data in this share. RETURN VALUE
If this function returns NULL, something went wrong (out of memory, etc.) and therefore the share object was not created. SEE ALSO

libcurl-share - how to use the share interface DESCRIPTION
This is an overview on how to use the libcurl share interface in your C programs. There are specific man pages for each function mentioned in here. All functions in the share interface are prefixed with curl_share. OBJECTIVES
The share interface was added to enable sharing of data between curl "handles". ONE SET OF DATA - MANY TRANSFERS You can have multiple easy handles share data between them. Have them update and use the same cookie database or DNS cache! This way, each single transfer will take advantage from data updates made by the other transfer(s). SHARE OBJECT
You create a shared object with curl_share_init(3). It returns a handle for a newly created one. You tell the shared object what data you want it to share by using curl_share_setopt(3). Currently you can only share DNS and/or COOKIE data. Since you can use this share from multiple threads, and libcurl has no internal thread synchronization, you must provide mutex callbacks if you're using this multi-threaded. You set lock and unlock functions with curl_share_setopt(3) too. Then, you make an easy handle to use this share, you set the CURLOPT_SHARE option with curl_easy_setopt(3), and pass in share handle. You can make any number of easy handles share the same share handle. To make an easy handle stop using that particular share, you set CURLOPT_SHARE to NULL for that easy handle. To make a handle stop sharing a particular data, you can CURLSHOPT_UNSHARE it. When you're done using the share, make sure that no easy handle is still using it, and call curl_share_cleanup(3) on the handle. SEE ALSO
