    Can anyone point me a nice tutorial or documentation about connecting C programs and Internet forms, to make some kind of "Front end"?

    Thanks

    Is a great library for writing CGI files in C. Then you use normal HTML forms.

    Thank you all for the answers, great tutorials btw.

    I think I didn't express myself the way I wanted.

    Let's suppose I have website X, which uses many forms, forums and stuff like that. I'd like to build my program Y to access website X, for example, you start the program and you can answer the forums of website X through program Y.

    Got it?

    Thanks

    then you need to read up on socket or windows socket programming...."beej's guide to network programming" is a good start, google it.
