Name
easy:SetOpt_Transfer_Encoding -- ask for HTTP Transfer Encoding
Synopsis
easy:SetOpt_Transfer_Encoding(enable)
Function
Pass a value set to 1 to enable or 0 to disable.

Adds a request for compressed Transfer Encoding in the outgoing HTTP request. If the server supports this and so desires, it can respond with the HTTP response sent using a compressed Transfer-Encoding that will be automatically uncompressed by libcurl on reception.

Transfer-Encoding differs slightly from the Content-Encoding you ask for with #CURLOPT_ACCEPT_ENCODING in that a Transfer-Encoding is strictly meant to be for the transfer and thus MUST be decoded before the data arrives in the client. Traditionally, Transfer-Encoding has been much less used and supported by both HTTP clients and HTTP servers.
