Function

SoupCookieparse

Declaration [src]

SoupCookie*
soup_cookie_parse (
  const char* header,
  GUri* origin
)

Description [src]

Parses header and returns a SoupCookie.

If header contains multiple cookies, only the first one will be parsed.

If header does not have “path” or “domain” attributes, they will be defaulted from origin. If origin is NULL, path will default to “/”, but domain will be left as NULL. Note that this is not a valid state for a SoupCookie, and you will need to fill in some appropriate string for the domain if you want to actually make use of the cookie.

As of version 3.4.0 the default value of a cookie’s same-site-policy is SOUP_SAME_SITE_POLICY_LAX.

Parameters

header const char*
 

A cookie string (eg, the value of a Set-Cookie header)

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
 The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
origin GUri
 

Origin of the cookie.

 The argument can be NULL.
 The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Return value

Returns: SoupCookie
 

A new SoupCookie, or NULL if it could not be parsed, or contained an illegal “domain” attribute for a cookie originating from origin.

 The caller of the function takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
 The return value can be NULL.
