werkzeug.parse_list_header(value)[source]

Parse lists as described by RFC 2068 Section 2.

In particular, parse comma-separated lists where the elements of the list may include quoted-strings. A quoted-string could contain a comma. A non-quoted string could have quotes in the middle. Quotes are removed automatically after parsing.

It basically works like parse_set_header() just that items may appear multiple times and case sensitivity is preserved.

The return value is a standard list:

>>> parse_list_header('token, "quoted value"')
['token', 'quoted value']


To create a header from the list again, use the dump_header() function.

Parameters: value – a string with a list header. list
