    Hmm...you will need to know socket programming and include any necessary libraries that will aid in parsing HTTP content. If you are looking to make a system call, not wise, have you reviewed how curl or wget is used?

    Use system. If you're not familiar with using command-line arguments do a search for argc and argv.

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    ...
    
    system("C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe \"http://www.yahoo.com\"");
    Something like that.
