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 */
      while(cookies) {
        printf("%s", cookies->data);
        cookies = cookies->next;
      }
      /* we must free these cookies when we're done */
      curl_slist_free_all(cookies);
    }
  }
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}
