curl_escape(3)                  libcurl Manual                  curl_escape(3)



NAME
       curl_escape - URL encodes the given string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       char *curl_escape( char *url, int length );

DESCRIPTION
       Obsolete function. Use curl_easy_escape(3) instead!

       This  function  will convert the given input string to an URL encoded string and return that as a new allocated
       string. All input characters that are not a-z, A-Z or 0-9 will be converted to their "URL escaped" version (%NN
       where NN is a two-digit hexadecimal number).

       If the 'length' argument is set to 0, curl_escape() will use strlen() on the input 'url' string to find out the
       size.

       You must curl_free() the returned string when you're done with it.

AVAILABILITY
       Since 7.15.4, curl_easy_escape(3) should be used. This function will be removed in a future release.

RETURN VALUE
       A pointer to a zero terminated string or NULL if it failed.
