    getting information from the web

    How would I grab information from the internet in a C++ program? I would imagine I need to use a stream of some sort, but I have no clue where to start declaring this. I've tried using it as an ifstream, but to no vail. Help please?

    Check out the network programming board, there should be a sticky with some stuff to get you started. (and maybe do a search on that board as well for specific information)
