       libcurl-env - environment variables libcurl understands

       libcurl	reads  and  understands	a set of environment variables that if
       set will	control	and change behaviors. This is the full list  of	 vari-
       ables  to set and description of	what they do. Also note	that curl, the
       command line tool, supports a set of additional	environment  variables
       independently of	this.

	      When  libcurl  is	given a	URL to use in a	transfer, it first ex-
	      tracts the "scheme" part from the	URL and	checks if there	 is  a
	      given  proxy set for that	in its corresponding environment vari-
	      able. A  URL  like  ""	 will  hence  use  the
	      "http_proxy" variable, while a URL like "" will
	      use the "ftp_proxy" variable.

	      These proxy variables are	also checked for  in  their  uppercase
	      versions,	 except	the "http_proxy" one which is only used	lower-
	      case. Note also that some	systems	actually have a	case  insensi-
	      tive  handling  of  environment  variables  and  then  of	course
	      "HTTP_PROXY" will	still work...

	      This is a	setting	to set proxy for all  URLs,  independently  of
	      what  scheme  is being used. Note	that the scheme	specific vari-
	      ables will override this one if set.

	      When libcurl is built to support multiple	SSL backends, it  will
	      select  a	specific backend at first use. If no selection is done
	      by the program using libcurl, this variable's selection will  be
	      used. It should be set to	the full SSL backend name to use (case

       HOME   When the netrc feature is	used (CURLOPT_NETRC(3)), this variable
	      is  checked as the primary way to	find the "current" home	direc-
	      tory in which the	.netrc file is likely to exist.

	      User name	to use when invoking the  ntlm-wb  tool,  if  NTLMUSER
	      wasn't set.

	      This  has	 the  same functionality as the	CURLOPT_NOPROXY(3) op-
	      tion: it gives libcurl a comma-separated list of host name  pat-
	      terns for	which libcurl should not use a proxy.

	      User name	to use when invoking the ntlm-wb tool.

	      When  set	and libcurl runs with a	SSL backend that supports this
	      feature, libcurl will save SSL secrets into the given file name.
	      Using those SSL secrets, other tools (such as Wireshark) can de-
	      crypt the	SSL communication and analyze/view the traffic.

	      When libcurl runs	with the NSS backends for TLS  features,  this
	      variable	is used	to find	the directory for NSS PKI database in-
	      stead of the built-in.

       USER   User name	to use when invoking the ntlm-wb tool, if NTLMUSER and
	      LOGNAME weren't set.

Debug Variables
       There's	a  set	of  variables  only recognized and used	if libcurl was
       built "debug enabled", which should never be true for a library used in

	      Debug-only variable.

	      Debug-only variable.

	      Debug-only  variable. Used to set	a fixed	faked value to use in-
	      stead of a proper	random number so  that	functions  in  libcurl
	      that are otherwise getting random	outputs	can be tested for what
	      they generate.

	      Debug-only variable. Used	for debugging the lib/ldap implementa-

	      Debug-only variable. Used	to set to a debug-version of the ntlm-
	      wb executable.

	      Debug-only variable. Used	for debugging the  lib/openldap.c  im-
