CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE sets a file name to read cookies from

CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR sets a file name to write cookies to

If you want to modify cookies that libcurl has received already, or add one
"manually" to libcurl's internal cookie engine, you should use

CURLOPT_COOKIE can be set to append a specfic cookie to the outgoing request,
but that will not be added to the internal cookie engine.
