curl_getenv(3)			libcurl	Manual			curl_getenv(3)

NAME
       curl_getenv - return value for environment name

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       char *curl_getenv(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
       curl_getenv() is	a portable wrapper for the getenv() function, meant to
       emulate its behaviour and provide an identical interface	for all	 oper-
       ating systems libcurl builds on (including win32).

       You must	curl_free(3) the returned string when you're done with it.

AVAILABILITY
       This function will be removed from the public libcurl API in a near fu-
       ture. It	will instead be	made "available" by source code	 access	 only,
       and then	as curlx_getenv().

RETURN VALUE
       A  pointer to a null-terminated string or NULL if it failed to find the
       specified name.

NOTE
       Under unix operating systems, there isn't any point in returning	an al-
       located	memory,	 although  other  systems  won't work properly if this
       isn't done. The unix implementation thus	has to	suffer	slightly  from
       the drawbacks of	other systems.

SEE ALSO
       getenv(3C),
