NAME
CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION - start a new cookie session
SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION, long init);
DESCRIPTION
Pass a long set to 1 to mark this as a new cookie "session". It will force libcurl to ignore all cookies it is about to load that are "ses- sion cookies" from the previous session. By default, libcurl always stores and loads all cookies, independent if they are session cookies or not. Session cookies are cookies without expiry date and they are meant to be alive and existing for this "session" only. A "session" is usually defined in browser land for as long as you have your browser up, more or less.
