NAME
       curl_escape - URL encodes the given string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       char *curl_escape( char *url, int length );

DESCRIPTION
       Obsolete function. Use curl_easy_escape(3) instead!

       This function will convert the given input string to an URL encoded string and return that
       as a new allocated string. All input characters that are not a-z, A-Z or 0-9 will be  con-
       verted to their "URL escaped" version (%NN where NN is a two-digit hexadecimal number).

       If  the	'length' argument is set to 0, curl_escape() 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_escape(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.
