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  auto-
       matically 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.
