CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE(3)

CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE - file name to read .netrc info from

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE, char *file);

Pass a char * as parameter, pointing to a zero terminated string containing the full path name to the file you want libcurl to use as .netrc file. If this option is omitted, and CURLOPT_NETRC(3) is set, libcurl will attempt to find a .netrc file in the current user's home directory.
The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.
