    why is it not pulling up the text from online source?

    I have tried using get/put to use a copy of the text on the internet with no avail but however I am still getting an error as well I am having an issue creating the part that calls the parts of the function together that ask ASCIIsum, Double space delete, and the word counter into the function should I have an extra section that calls these functions and if so how do I construct it properly?
    Code:
    int getput()
    {
    string what goes here????;
    fstream streamObject("http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1342/pg1342.txt");
    fstream localFile("pap.txt");
    fstream newFile("new.txt");
    
    
    
        if(streamObject.fail())
            cout << "file failed to load." << endl;
        else
            cout << "file load was successful." << endl;
    
        if(localFile.fail())
            cout << "file2 failed to load." << endl;
        else
            cout << "file load was successful." << endl;
    
        while(!streamObject.eof())
        {
            streamObject.put(localFile.get());
        }
    
        streamObject.close();
    
        char single = localFile.get();
        while(!localFile.eof())
        {
            what goes here???? += single;
            single = localFile.get();
    
        }
        localFile << newFile;
    
        localFile.close();
    
        asciistring(what goes here????);
        doubledelete(what goes here????);
        numberwordsinstring(what goes here????);
    
    
    
    
    
        return 0;
    
    }

    Code:
    fstream streamObject("http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1342/pg1342.txt");
    sorry. fstream works only for local files.

    You could use cURL, or read up on sockets and network programming and do it by hand.
