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.
