[curl->version] returns a human readable string with the version number of libcurl and some of its important components (like OpenSSL version).
If the boolean true is passed as a parameter, detailed information will be returned instead, as a static array.
Use the [curl->version] method.
libcurl/7.19.7 OpenSSL/0.9.8l zlib/1.2.3
Use [curl->version(true)]. This will return a static array for convenience.
staticarray((age = 3), (version_num = 464896), (ssl_version_num = 0), (ares_num = 0), (version = 7.24.0), (host = x86_64-apple-darwin12.0), (ssl_version = OpenSSL/0.9.8r), (libz_version = 1.2.5), (ares = ), (libidn = ), (protocols = staticarray(dict, file, ftp, ftps, gopher, http, https, imap, imaps, ldap, ldaps, pop3, pop3s, rtsp, smtp, smtps, telnet, tftp)))
If you experience problems while using the curl library, then look at the documentation for libcurl. There are features depending on the actual version installed on your host.
