curl_unescape(3)                libcurl Manual                curl_unescape(3)



NAME
       curl_unescape - URL decodes the given string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       Obsolete function. Use curl_easy_unescape(3) instead!

       This  function  will  convert  the  given URL encoded input string to a "plain string" and return that as a new
       allocated string. All input characters that are URL encoded (%XX where XX is a  two-digit  hexadecimal  number)
       will be converted to their plain text versions.

       If  the  'length' argument is set to 0, curl_unescape() 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_unescape(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.
