RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for curl_global_init (redhat section 3)

curl_global_init(3)				    libcurl Manual				  curl_global_init(3)

NAME
curl_global_init - Global libcurl initialisation
SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_global_init(long flags);
DESCRIPTION
This function should only be called once (no matter how many threads or libcurl sessions that'll be used) by every application that uses libcurl. If this function hasn't been invoked when curl_easy_init is called, it will be done automatically by libcurl. The flags option is a bit pattern that tells libcurl exact what features to init, as described below. Set the desired bits by ORing the values together. You must however always use the curl_global_cleanup function, as that cannot be called automatically for you by libcurl. Calling this function more than once will cause unpredictable results. This function was added in libcurl 7.8.
FLAGS
CURL_GLOBAL_ALL Initialize everything possible. This sets all known bits. CURL_GLOBAL_SSL Initialize SSL CURL_GLOBAL_WIN32 Initialize the Win32 socket libraries. (added in libcurl 7.8.1) CURL_GLOBAL_NOTHING Initialise nothing extra. This sets no bit.
RETURN VALUE
If this function returns non-zero, something went wrong and you cannot use the other curl functions.
SEE ALSO
curl_global_cleanup(3),
BUGS
None. libcurl 7.9.1 13 Nov 2001 curl_global_init(3)
