CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR(3)       curl_easy_setopt options       CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR(3)




NAME

       CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR - file name to store cookies to


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode  curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, char *file-
       name);


DESCRIPTION

       Pass a filename as char *, zero  terminated.  This  will  make  libcurl
       write   all  internally  known  cookies  to  the  specified  file  when
       curl_easy_cleanup(3) is called. If no cookies are known, no  file  will
       be created. Specify "-" as filename to instead have the cookies written
       to stdout. Using this option also enables cookies for this session,  so
       if  you for example follow a location it will make matching cookies get
       sent accordingly.

       Note that libcurl doesn't read any cookies from the cookie jar. If  you
       want to read cookies from a file, use CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE(3).

       If  the  cookie  jar  file  can't  be  created  or written to (when the
       curl_easy_cleanup(3) is called), libcurl will not and cannot report  an
       error  for  this.  Using CURLOPT_VERBOSE(3) or CURLOPT_DEBUGFUNCTION(3)
       will get a warning to display, but that is the  only  visible  feedback
       you get about this possibly lethal situation.

       Since  7.43.0 cookies that were imported in the Set-Cookie format with-
       out a domain name are not exported by this option.

       The application does not have to keep the string around  after  setting
       this option.
