Example #1 curl_multi_close() example

This example will create two cURL handles, add them to a multi handle, and then run them in parallel.

<?php
// create both cURL resources
$ch1 curl_init();
$ch2 curl_init();

// set URL and other appropriate options
curl_setopt($ch1CURLOPT_URL"http://www.example.com/");
curl_setopt($ch1CURLOPT_HEADER0);
curl_setopt($ch2CURLOPT_URL"http://www.php.net/");
curl_setopt($ch2CURLOPT_HEADER0);

//create the multiple cURL handle
$mh curl_multi_init();

//add the two handles
curl_multi_add_handle($mh,$ch1);
curl_multi_add_handle($mh,$ch2);

$running=null;
//execute the handles
do {
    
curl_multi_exec($mh,$running);
} while (
$running 0);

//close the handles
curl_multi_remove_handle($mh$ch1);
curl_multi_remove_handle($mh$ch2);
curl_multi_close($mh);

?>

curl_multi_close seems to close the curl_multi handle, but not each of the individual curl handles. at least in the PHP 5.3 development build I am using, these each need to be closed manually.

I would recommend the final lines of this example be updated to:

<?php
//close the handles
curl_multi_remove_handle($mh, $ch1);
curl_close($ch1);
curl_multi_remove_handle($mh, $ch2);
curl_close($ch2);
curl_multi_close($mh);
?>
