I'v only very little knowledge of programming and completely new to C/C++. I've an interesting 1st project in mind that should be mostly doable, educational and usefull. At this moment I see only one serious obstacle, accessing the internet.
I need a way to handle internet access from my program. I've found curl and curlpp, but with my present knowledge they're too complicated for me. I'm looking for a function or other code that relieves me from handling all the overhead. Ideally I call a function, feed it with UID, PW, URL and the type of request (get, post etc) and it returns a string with the result. This without me having to worry about cookies, keeping the connection alive etc.
Does anyone know where I can find this kind of code?
