CURLOPT_EGDSOCKET - EGD socket path
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_EGDSOCKET, char *path);
Deprecated option. It serves no purpose anymore.

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting
All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");

If built with TLS enabled. Only the OpenSSL backend will use this, and
only with OpenSSL versions before 1.1.0.
This option was deprecated in 7.84.0.
Returns CURLE_OK if TLS is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or
CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
