CurlShare Object

class pycurl.CurlShare → New CurlShare object

Creates a new CurlShare Object which corresponds to a CURLSH handle in libcurl. CurlShare objects is what you pass as an argument to the SHARE option on Curl objects.

CurlShare objects have the following methods:

close() → None

Close shared handle.

Corresponds to curl_share_cleanup in libcurl. This method is automatically called by pycurl when a CurlShare object no longer has any references to it, but can also be called explicitly.

setopt(option, value) → None

Set curl share option.

Corresponds to curl_share_setopt in libcurl, where option is specified with the CURLSHOPT_* constants in libcurl, except that the CURLSHOPT_ prefix has been changed to SH_. Currently, value must be either LOCK_DATA_COOKIE or LOCK_DATA_DNS.

Example usage:

import pycurl
curl = pycurl.Curl()
s = pycurl.CurlShare()
s.setopt(pycurl.SH_SHARE, pycurl.LOCK_DATA_COOKIE)
s.setopt(pycurl.SH_SHARE, pycurl.LOCK_DATA_DNS)
curl.setopt(pycurl.URL, '')
curl.setopt(pycurl.SHARE, s)

Raises pycurl.error exception upon failure.
