    Question How do I open a website within C++?

    Total newbie asks:


    I have a network program which I would like to emulate and improve.

    It basically takes a directory from a text file, adds it to domain name and returns the code (200, 301, 401, 500 etc)

    I can do this manually using telnet, but how do I do this using C++?

    i.e.

    telnet (domain name)
    GET HTTP 1.0 (directory)


    returns:

    website


    do I use system calls, or is there a magic C++ code which also does it?
