Pass a pointer to your callback function, which should match the prototype
Applies to non-ASCII platforms. curl_version_info(3) will return the
CURL_VERSION_CONV feature bit set if this option is provided.
The data to be converted is in a buffer pointed to by the ptr parameter.
The amount of data to convert is indicated by the length parameter. The
converted data overlays the input data in the buffer pointed to by the ptr
parameter. CURLE_OK must be returned upon successful conversion. A
CURLcode return value defined by curl.h, such as CURLE_CONV_FAILED,
should be returned if an error was encountered.
CURLOPT_CONV_TO_NETWORK_FUNCTION converts from host encoding to the
network encoding. It is used when commands or ASCII data are sent over the
If you set a callback pointer to NULL, or dont set it at all, the built-in
libcurl iconv functions will be used. If HAVE_ICONV was not defined when
libcurl was built, and no callback has been established, conversion will
return the CURLE_CONV_REQD error code.
If HAVE_ICONV is defined, CURL_ICONV_CODESET_OF_HOST must also be defined.
#define CURL_ICONV_CODESET_OF_HOST "IBM-1047"
The iconv code in libcurl will default the network and UTF8 codeset names as
#define CURL_ICONV_CODESET_OF_NETWORK "ISO8859-1"
#define CURL_ICONV_CODESET_FOR_UTF8 "UTF-8"
You will need to override these definitions if they are different on your
