    Thanks, yes there's no way to escape the ;-handling... the ; separates the password from the options part (which is optional)

    Thanks, fixed now in git and it will be included in the upcoming 7.34.0 release.

      Daniel, was ";" support simply removed, not fixed? I can't login with ; in password.

    Alex: you don't say which version you have, but if it is 7.34.0 oir later you're either experiencing a new bug or do something wrong. Please post to the curl-users list.
