curl_easy_cleanup(3)                           libcurl Manual                           curl_easy_cleanup(3)

       curl_easy_cleanup - End a libcurl easy session

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       void curl_easy_cleanup(CURL *handle);

       This  function  must  be  the  last  function  to call for an easy session. It is the opposite of the
       curl_easy_init(3) function and must be called with the same handle as input that  the  curl_easy_init
       call returned.

       This  will  effectively  close  all connections this handle has used and possibly has kept open until
       now. Don't call this function if you intend to transfer more files.

       Occasionally  you  may  get  your  progress  callback  or  header   callback   called   from   within
       curl_easy_cleanup(3)  (if  previously  set for the handle using curl_easy_setopt(3)). Like if libcurl
       decides to shut down the connection and the protocol is of a kind that  requires  a  command/response
       sequence before disconnect. Examples of such protocols are FTP, POP3 and IMAP.

       Any uses of the handle after this function has been called and have returned, are illegal. This kills
       the handle and all memory associated with it!

       With libcurl versions prior to 7.17.: when you've called this, you can safely remove all the  strings
       you've previously told libcurl to use, as it won't use them anymore now.
