RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for curl_getenv (redhat section 3)

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).

RETURN VALUE
       If  successful, curl_getenv() returns a pointer to the value of the specified environment.
       The memory it refers to is malloc()ed why the application must free() this when	the  data
       has  completed  to serve its purpose. When curl_getenv() 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 have to suffer slightly from the drawbacks of other systems.

SEE ALSO
       getenv(3C),

BUGS
       Surely there are some, you tell me!
