    Need you insights on the following Task

    I would like to know the Tools and Approach to be used to complete the following task.

    Task
    Build a Windows Application which connects to a webpage asynchronously and fetches 10 lines of information for every 15 minutes and this should be written in a mySQL table which is trailed as a script.

    Example webpage:
    MobileRead Wiki - TXT

    My Idea:

    Using a Qt(Framework) to build a Windows App and connect one of the buttons of GUI to open a browser so that it can copy the information into a String and using CURL libraries to store the information into mySQL table.

    Your ideas and insights please...

    Thank you

    Max

    Or even use CURL to fetch the web page into a string, then parse said string and use the mysql library to write into the mysql database.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
