    * write a C program
    * send http head request
    * write to structure
    * write to file
    * connecting to the internet
    * proxies

    Which of those is your question about in particular? What have you written so far?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I have written the programe and it works for GET request(created a socket and write GET reuest to the socket in the proxy)but it don't work for HEAD request.

    So compare the transactions which your program does with those of a program which is known to work in the same circumstance (eg. your browser).

    Here you will find the RFCs for the HTML protocol.
