Open socket and read from web page
Does anyone have a simple program which can be compiled on visual studio 2010 for windows that opens a socket to a given webpage and allows you to read the html just as you would with a local file? I don't want a html parser, I just wish to be able to place a pointer on the start of the webpage and read.
I have tried libcurl and I just cannot get it to compile and I do not understand enough about networking to use winsock. I would really appreciate some help.
