    Looking at HTML in VC++

    I want to get the HTML source code off of the internet through VC++. Anyone know how to do this....

    All I want is the text file you get when u right click on a web page and click view source but I need to have VC++ go out and grab it.

    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    so you want text only versions of the web pages?

    You could just copy the source off of the web page and save it in anotepad...

    Ok, I'm not sure if I've understood your problem correctly. Probably this is what you are trying to do:

    You want to fetch the HTML source of some webpages hosted onto a remote machine.

    In this case, I'd open a socket(), connect() it to the remote machine's web-page-server's port. Then, in a loop: send() the GET request for the pages, do a recv(). So, I'll be having each page received in a buffer.

    This is the regular C approach. Since you have the option of using C++, you could use customised classes for doing this. I don't know much about them.

    Hope this helps.
