httr_options

0th

Percentile

List available options.

This function lists all available options for config(). It provides both the short R name which you use with httr, and the longer Curl name, which is useful when searching the documentation. curl_doc opens a link to the libcurl documentation for an option in your browser.

Usage
httr_options(matches)

curl_docs(x)

Arguments
matches
If not missing, this restricts the output so that either the httr or curl option matches this regular expression.
x
An option name (either short or full).
Details

RCurl and httr use slightly different names to libcurl: the initial CURLOPT_ is removed, all underscores are converted to periods and the option is given in lower case. Thus "CURLOPT_SSLENGINE_DEFAULT" becomes "sslengine.default".

Value

  • A data frame with three columns:
  • httrThe short name used in httr
  • libcurlThe full name used by libcurl
  • typeThe type of R object that the option accepts

Aliases
  • curl_docs
  • httr_options
Examples
