    Downloading Binary to Memory

    Hello. My friend wants to download a file from a webserver straight to memory. I've found something that does this (here) but with no C++ experience i have no idea what to do with it.

    I don't want to learn C++, I just want to get the program working. The people at #c++ on freenode are quite unfriendly to people like me it seems, so i'm sorry if you have the same opinion.

    Thanks for any help

    That sounds like something doable, but it would probably require a few dozen lines of code (at least - this assumes using a reasonable web-library such as webcurl) - I haven't actually done something like it myself, so I could be wrong.
