    manipulating and using web forms

    There is a web form I would like to have a program use. Here is the general idea. It's a text messaging form and I would like to have a program send me results from another program to my phone through it. I'm pretty new to C, any suggestions? Anything at all, really.
    -Thanks in advance

    If I understand correctly, you want a client program to fill in a web form? In that case, learn how to use sockets, learn how to use HTTP and send a request with whatever data you want in the body of the request or find some library that does it for you.

    My first suggestion is that before you undertake a project like this, you get rid of that "new to C" status. In order to use sockets in a practical manner you're going to need a fairly decent understanding of C constructs. Don't take huge leaps - just keep taking things one step at a time.

    When you are finished learning C (though I guess you're never finished - but you know what I mean) - you'll want to take this project over to the Networking board, being sure to tell us your OS.

    If you know basic C and have some experience with sockets, what specifically is the problem?
