Whether to ignore the body of the download.
Set to 1 tells the library to not include the body-part in the output. This is only relevant for protocols that have separate header and body parts. On HTTP(S) servers, this will make libcurl do a HEAD request.

To change request to GET, you should use CURL.SetOptionGet. Change request to POST with CURL.SetOptionPost etc.

See also NOBODY option in CURL manual.


Get only the headers:

MBS( "CURL.SetOptionNoBody"; $curl; 1 )
