    Its going to depend on your OS and compiler. If you're on Windows, lookup Winsock.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    One solution is Winsock and HTTP command including /GET.

    How about socket.h - or just lookup how to create a TCP/IP connection is all you really need. There are 3rd party API's out there to use just for that.

    You might also need an XML parser to properly parse the HTML file.

    I believe HTTP is platform independent. For Linux, you will use similar socket too tools as to Windows' Winsock. The concept is the same. For example, the I/O model is platform independent.
