       curl_unescape - URL decodes the given string

       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

       This  function  will  convert  the  given URL encoded input string to a "plain string" and
       return that as a new allocated string. All input characters  that  are  URL  encoded  (%XX
       where  XX  is  a two-digit hexadecimal number, or +) will be converted to their plain text
       versions (up to a ? letter, no + letters to the right of a ? letter will be converted).

       If the 'length' argument is set to 0, curl_unescape() will use strlen() on the input 'url'
       string to find out the size.

       You must free() the returned string when you're done with it.

       A pointer to a zero terminated string or NULL if it failed.
