Generic function for resetting an object

This generic and the associated method for a CURLHandle allows one to reset the state of the Curl object to its default state. This is convenient if we want to reuse the same connection, but want to ensure that it is in a particular state.

Unfortunately, we cannot query the state of different fields in an existing Curl handle and so we need to be able to reset the state and then update it with any particular settings we would have liked to keep.

the object to be reset. For our method, this is an object of class CURLHandle.

Details

This calls the C routine curl_easy_reset in libcurl.

Value

Methods typically return the updated version of the object passed to it. This allows the caller to assign the new result to the same variable rather than relying on mutating the content of the object in place. In other words, the object should not be treated as a reference but a new object with the updated contents should be returned.
