These routines do not need to be called for normal file accessing. They are
primarily intended to help with debugging and diagnosing issues which occur
during file downloads. These routines are NOT THREAD-SAFE.
- Toggle the verbosity of the libcurl library diagnostic output when
accessing files with the HTTPS or FTPS protocol. `flag' = 1 turns the output
on, 0 turns it off (the default).
void fits_verbose_https / ffvhtps
- If `flag' is set to 1, this will display (to stderr) a progress
bar during an https file download. (This is not yet implemented
for other file transfer protocols.) `flag' = 0 by default.
void fits_show_download_progress / ffshdwn
- The timeout setting (in seconds) determines the maximum time
allowed for a net download to complete. If a download has not finished within
the allowed time, the file transfer will terminate and the CFITSIO calling
function will return with an error. Use fits_get_timeout will see the
current timeout setting and fits_set_timeout to change the setting. This
adjustmant may be particularly useful when having trouble downloading large
files over slow connections.
