CURLINFO_COOKIELIST(3) curl_easy_getinfo options CURLINFO_COOKIELIST(3)

NAME

CURLINFO_COOKIELIST - get all known cookies

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_COOKIELIST,
struct curl_slist **cookies);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a 'struct curl_slist *' to receive a linked-list of all cookies curl knows (expired ones, too). Don't forget to call curl_slist_free_all(3) on the list after it has been used. If there are no cookies (cookies for the handle have not been enabled or simply none have been received) 'struct curl_slist *' will be set to point to NULL.
Since 7.43.0 cookies that were imported in the Set-Cookie format without a domain name are not exported by this option.

PROTOCOLS

HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
/* enable the cookie engine with a non-existing file */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "-");
res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
if(!res) { /* extract all known cookies */ struct curl_slist *cookies = NULL; res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_COOKIELIST, &cookies); if(!res && cookies) { /* a linked list of cookies in cookie file format */ struct curl_slist *each = cookies; while(each) { printf("%s", each->data); each = each->next; } /* we must free these cookies when we're done */ curl_slist_free_all(cookies); } } curl_easy_cleanup(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.14.1

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
