curl_getenv

Section: libcurl Manual (3)
Updated: February 03, 2016

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 operating systems libcurl builds on (including win32).  

AVAILABILITY

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

RETURN VALUE

If successful, curl_getenv() returns a pointer to the value of the specified environment. The memory it refers to is malloc()ed so the application must free() this when the data is no longer needed. When curl_getenv(3) fails to find the specified name, it returns a null pointer.  

NOTE

Under unix operating systems, there isn't any point in returning an allocated 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.
