Typedef Documentation

◆ apreq_cookie_t

Cookie type, supporting both Netscape and RFC cookie specifications.

Function Documentation

◆ apreq_cookie_as_string()

char* apreq_cookie_as_string ( const apreq_cookie_t c,
apr_pool_t p 

Returns a string that represents the cookie as it would appear in a valid "Set-Cookie*" header.

ppool which allocates the returned string.
header string.

◆ apreq_cookie_expires()

void apreq_cookie_expires ( apreq_cookie_t c,
const char *  time_str 

Set the Cookie's expiration date.

cThe cookie.
time_strIf NULL, the Cookie's expiration date is unset, making it a session cookie. This means no "expires" or "max-age" attribute will appear in the cookie's serialized form. If time_str is not NULL, the expiration date will be reset to the offset (from now) represented by time_str. The time_str should be in a format that apreq_atoi64t() can understand, namely /[+-]?\d+\s*[YMDhms]/.
Now time_str may also be a fixed date; see apr_date_parse_rfc() for admissible formats.

◆ apreq_cookie_make()

apreq_cookie_t* apreq_cookie_make ( apr_pool_t pool,
const char *  name,
const apr_size_t  nlen,
const char *  value,
const apr_size_t  vlen 

Returns a new cookie, made from the argument list.

poolPool which allocates the cookie.
nameThe cookie's name.
nlenLength of name.
valueThe cookie's value.
vlenLength of value.
the new cookie

◆ apreq_cookie_serialize()

int apreq_cookie_serialize ( const apreq_cookie_t c,
char *  buf,
apr_size_t  len 

Same functionality as apreq_cookie_as_string. Stores the string representation in buf, using up to len bytes in buf as storage. The return value has the same semantics as that of apr_snprintf, including the special behavior for a "len = 0" argument.

bufstorage location for the result.
lensize of buf's storage area.
size of resulting header string.

◆ apreq_parse_cookie_header()

apr_status_t apreq_parse_cookie_header ( apr_pool_t pool,
apr_table_t jar,
const char *  header 

Parse a cookie header and store the cookies in an apr_table_t.

poolpool which allocates the cookies
jartable where parsed cookies are stored
headerthe header value
APREQ_ERROR_BADSEQ if an unparsable character sequence appears.
APREQ_ERROR_MISMATCH if an rfc-cookie attribute appears in a netscape cookie header.
APR_ENOTIMPL if an unrecognized rfc-cookie attribute appears.
APREQ_ERROR_NOTOKEN if a required token was not present.
APREQ_ERROR_BADCHAR if an unexpected token was present.
