NAME

       curl_easy_escape - URL encodes the given string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       char *curl_easy_escape( CURL *curl, char *url, int length );

DESCRIPTION

       This function converts the given input string to an URL encoded string and returns that as
       a new allocated string. All input characters that are not a-z, A-Z, 0-9, '-', '.', '_'  or
       '~'  are converted to their "URL escaped" version (%NN where NN is a two-digit hexadecimal
       number).

       If the length argument is set to 0 (zero), curl_easy_escape(3) uses strlen() on the  input
       url to find out the size.

       You must curl_free(3) the returned string when you're done with it.

AVAILABILITY

       Added in 7.15.4 and replaces the old curl_escape(3) function.

RETURN VALUE

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