curl_unescape(3)		libcurl	Manual		      curl_unescape(3)

NAME
       curl_unescape - URL decodes the given string

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

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