curl_escape(3)			libcurl	Manual			curl_escape(3)

NAME
       curl_escape - URL encodes the given string

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       char *curl_escape( const	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(3) 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 null-terminated string or	NULL if	it failed.
