    Of course it's possible, but it may not be recommended at your current level.

    Here are some options:

    curl and libcurl

    The Ultimate TCP/IP Home Page - CodeProject

    Windows Sockets 2 (Windows)

    Windows Internet (Windows)

    I suggest a linear progression.
    - read the rates from the keyboard
    - read the rates from a file
    - read the rates from a simple text file on the internet
    - read the rates from a formatted HTML file on the internet

    The other alternative is to pick a different programming language that comes with a lot of "internet" friendly features which make accessing remote data an awful lot easier than it is in C.

    I dunno, people pick C, then wonder why there isn't an "easy everything" answer.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
