version of libcurl with different Windows versions. Current version of
libcurl imports SSPI functions from secur32.dll. However, under Windows NT
4.0 these functions are located in security.dll, under Windows 9x - in
secur32.dll and Windows 2000 and XP contains both these DLLs (security.dll
just forwards calls to secur32.dll).
Dmitry's patch loads proper library dynamically depending on Windows
version. Function InitSecurityInterface() is used to obtain pointers to all
of SSPI function in one structure.
(http://curl.haxx.se/bug/view.cgi?id=1338648) which really is more of a
feature request, but anyway. It pointed out that --max-redirs did not allow
it to be set to 0, which then would return an error code on the first
Location: found. Based on Nis' patch, now libcurl supports CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS
set to 0, or -1 for infinity. Added test case 274 to verify.
(http://curl.haxx.se/bug/view.cgi?id=1337723) that curl could not upload
binary data from stdin on Windows if the data contained control-Z (hex 1a)
since that is treated as end-of-file when read in text mode. Gisle Vanem
pointed out the fix, and I made both -T and --data-binary take advantage of
in the man page, curl would send an invalid HTTP Range: header. The correct
way would be to use "-r [number]-" or even "-r -[number]". Starting now,
curl will warn if this is discovered, and automatically append a dash to the
range before passing it to libcurl.
from the command line tool with --ignore-content-length. This will make it
easier to download files from Apache 1.x (and similar) servers that are
still having problems serving files larger than 2 or 4 GB. When this option
is enabled, curl will simply have to wait for the server to close the
connection to signal end of transfer. I wrote test case 269 that runs a
simple test that this works.
more places. First, CURL_HOME is a new environment variable that is used
instead of HOME if it is set, to point out where the default config file
lives. If there's no config file in the dir pointed out by one of the
environment variables, the Windows version will instead check the same
directory the executable curl is located in.
