Curl_Init ([optional_url])

Result Type:  A curl handle

Definition:  Starts a CURL session. Returns a curl handle for use with the other Curl_ functions. The functions closely follow (indeed are wrappers for) the standard curl easy API. For additional background on curl, see the curl project website.

Including a url in curl_init is equivalent to doing a curl_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_URL, url).


let ch = curl_init("http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=NZDUSD=X&f=sl1d1t1ba&e=.csv")

Availability:  available within MWScript handlers.
