WP_Http_Curl::stream_body( resource $handle, string $data ): int

Grabs the body of the cURL request.


The contents of the document are passed in chunks, so we append to the $body property for temporary storage. Returning a length shorter than the length of $data passed in will cause cURL to abort the request with CURLE_WRITE_ERROR.

$handle resource Required
