curl_getenv(3)				  libcurl Manual			   curl_getenv(3)

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 behav-
       iour 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.
