NAME

curl_free - reclaim memory that has been obtained through a libcurl call

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h> void curl_free(char *ptr);

DESCRIPTION

curl_free reclaims memory that has been obtained through a libcurl call. Use curl_free(3) instead of free() to avoid anomalies that can result from differences in memory management between your application and libcurl. Passing in a NULL pointer in ptr will make this function return immediately with no action.

EXAMPLE

char *width = curl_getenv("COLUMNS"); if(width) { /* it was set! */ curl_free(width); }

AVAILABILITY

Always

RETURN VALUE

None
