public SList<Cookie> cookies_from_response (Message msg)

Parses msg's Set-Cookie response headers and returns a SList of Cookies.

Cookies that do not specify "path" or "domain" attributes will have their values defaulted from msg.

Example: Cookies, sync:

public static int main (string[] args) {
// Create a session:
Soup.Session session = new Soup.Session ();

// Add a logger:
Soup.Logger logger = new Soup.Logger (Soup.LoggerLogLevel.MINIMAL, -1);
session.add_feature (logger);

// Create a cookie:
Soup.Cookie cookie = new Soup.Cookie ("soup-cookie", "my-val", "", "/", -1);
SList<Soup.Cookie> list = new SList<Soup.Cookie> ();
list.append (cookie);

// Send a request:
Soup.Message msg = new Soup.Message ("GET", "");
Soup.cookies_to_request (list, msg);
session.send_message (msg);

// Process the result:
msg.response_headers.foreach ((name, val) => {
print ("%s = %s\n", name, val);

print ("Status Code: %u\n", msg.status_code);
print ("Message length: %lld\n", msg.response_body.length);
print ("Data: \n%s\n", (string);

GLib.SList<Soup.Cookie> cookies = Soup.cookies_from_request (msg);
print ("Cookies from request: (%u)\n", cookies.length ());

foreach (Soup.Cookie c in cookies) {
print (" %s: %s\n",, c.value);

cookies = Soup.cookies_from_response (msg);
print ("Cookies from response: (%u)\n", cookies.length ());

foreach (Soup.Cookie c in cookies) {
print (" %s: %s\n",, c.value);

return 0;
