CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION(3)   curl_easy_setopt options   CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION - start a new cookie session

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	 curl_easy_setopt(CURL	*handle,  CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION,  long
       init);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a long set to 1 to mark this as a new cookie  "session".  It  will
       force  libcurl to ignore	all cookies it is about	to load	that are "ses-
       sion cookies" from the previous session.	 By  default,  libcurl	always
       stores  and  loads all cookies, independent if they are session cookies
       or not. Session cookies are cookies without expiry date	and  they  are
       meant to	be alive and existing for this "session" only.

       A  "session" is usually defined in browser land for as long as you have
       your browser up,	more or	less.

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");

	 /* new	"session", don't load session cookies */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION, 1L);

	 /* get	the (non session) cookies from this file */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "/tmp/cookies.txt");

	 ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

	 curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
