Example on .travis.yml with CURL extension enabled

Hi, I have a problem related to php CURL extension needed in travis-ci tests. Could anybody give me an working example how to correctly install & enable the PHP CURL extension via .travis.yml? My tests rely on existence of some CURL error constants.

I need to support CURL extension in both PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.

I've been trying to do sudo apt-get install php5-curl and then in my custom php.ini doing
extension = curl.so

But extensions directory is obviously unknown and using relative path does not work.

Thank you very much.

If you need to find out default extension directory, you may try this trick:

PHP_EXT=`php -r "echo ini_get('extension_dir');"`
echo "extension_dir=$PHP_EXT" >> ./tests/php.ini

but AFAIK, CURL and most other extensions are enabled on travis-ci.org by default, do you really need custom php.ini for travis tests?
