    c++ program autosave web page

    Does anyone know how to automatically save a web page to disk? I want my program to do the equivalent of file, save page as, web page complete, save. Is this possible in c++ ? I would think it would be in visual c++ because windows components are supposed to be in that software. Anyone have any ideas? I would prefer to do it c++ or c.

    Of course it's possible. Doing it is another thing, however.
    Basically, just grab whatever contents is in the file and save it.
    If you want to use it completely offline, you will have to grab whatever images or embedded media or such things it refers to.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Well, it's COM.
    It's quite simple.
    First you create an IWebBrowser2 interface, then query the IHTMLDocument2 interface and after that query the IPersistFile interface. After that you call the save method to save the file to disk.

    This probably means nothing to you, so I would suggest you read up a little on how COM works. Then it should be easy as pie.

    Nay, I cannot. I don't know of one.
