    No idea at all...

    Hey guys, great site!

    I am wanting to create a program that downloads certain files off the net.
    It would ideally have a section of which you can choose what file you want then click download. Where/what would i do about making this kind of program?

    Thanks, and help is greatly appreciated.

    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.

    So implement this into my code.
    Code:
    system("ftp path.to.site.com
    Would this be the code for Http?
    Code:
    system("Http path.to.site.com

    Not quite. 'ftp' is the name of a command-line program that services ftp requests (in c:\Windows on MS platforms). There isn't a corresponding 'http' program. You should read up on how the protocol works before proceding, anyway - what would be the point of giving you the code before you even understand it?
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Well there is cURL
    There is even libcURL for those who dont want all the details.

    Interesting. I'll definately take a closer look...

    Thanks, Salem.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
