class CURL MBS CURL Plugin 9.8 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ❌ No Desktop, Console & Web
A class to wrap libCURL.
Var d As New CURLMBS

// download here
d.OptionURL = URL

// if you use SSL, maybe put in a certificate or disable verification?
d.OptionSSLVerifyHost = 0
d.OptionSSLVerifyPeer = 0

// run download
Var e as integer = d.Perform

// check result
Var data As String = d.OutputData
Var DebugMessage As String = d.DebugMessages // check in debugger on error

ResultText.text="Result: "+str(e) // 0 = Okay, others are error codes, so check debug messsages

We have three variants:

CURLS* classes include a static CURL library with SSL and SSH.
CURLN* classes include a static CURL library with native SSL on Mac and Windows.
CURL* classes without S need you to supply your own CURL library.

All variants can load a custom CURL library or use the one from the system on Mac and Linux.
If no library is loaded or included, the plugin will try to load the system one in constructor.

from the website libCURL website:

libCURL is a free and easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library, supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. libCURL supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Digest, NTLM, Negotiate, Kerberos4), file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and more!

libCURL is highly portable, it builds and works identically on numerous platforms, including Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Darwin, HPUX, IRIX, AIX, Tru64, Linux, UnixWare, HURD, Windows, Amiga, OS/2, BeOs, Mac OS X, Ultrix, QNX, OpenVMS, RISC OS, Novell NetWare, DOS and more...

libCURL is free, thread-safe, IPv6 compatible, feature rich, well supported, fast, thoroughly documented and is already used by many known, big and successful companies and numerous applications.

On Linux you may need to install libraries like ldap: apt-get install libldap-2.4.2:i386

  • Version 18.2
    • Changed CollectOutputData, CollectHeaderData and CollectDebugData for CURLSMBS/CURLMBS/CURLNMBS to track if you set property and if you set to false, we ignore the data and do neither return error nor collect data.
