I assume you mean libssh2 version 0.9 ? That's a very old version we really
cannot recommend anyone to use.

I don't know what version that is. I recommend using version 1.2.4 or trying
the git version.

You're better off using the example from the release archive for your version.
The version on the site is the current development version and right now that
means the examples don't quite work with (older) releases.

This function was recently added and does not exist in libssh2 version 1.2.4
or earlier, but will exist in 1.2.5 and future releases.
