I'm not a newbie, used to do alot of programming in C,
C++ 5-6 years ago, but over the time my skills got
rusty. I'm trying to refresh, writing some small
I used to program mostly in windows environment, but
now am trying in freebsd unix. gnu c++ is perhaps most
commonly used compiler with unix, however I'm not
quite familiar with all the libraries it has and
probably first should ask whether it already has some
classes I need. Otherwise I will need 3rd party classlibs.
As a last resort will write them myself
Now, what I'm looking for. First of all, socks to
perform communication using IRC and HTTP protocols
from within the application. It's a simple app, more
like info bot to run on irc. HTTP to be used to grab
pages off certain sites, parse raw HTTP code and store
some of it. Basically to automate stuff I do manually - cut
from web, paste to IRC.
Also looking for classlibs if any available, to do INI
style text file parsing for configuration etc.
Will appreciate any help or advice where to look for.
