    Contacting Windows

    Hi there! I need some help on functions that comunicate directly with windows..

    2.
    Date. Is there a function that returns current date?

    3.
    Is it possible to use online .dat file in program? How would that be done?

    I'm assuming that, by "online", you mean "has an active, available connection to the internet"

    1. you need to look into network programming

    2. yes.

    3. see #1.

    Thanks for the links!

    I don't have permission to access that page (network programming)

    Could you navigate me through CSU Chico's webpage to the page I need to go?
    The direct link doesnt seems to work...
