    Some help with this

    Hi,

    I'd like to know how to make a program that basically automatically does stuff for me on a text based online game. Where should I look for the right functions etc. to use for this, I'm guessing it will use similar methods as a web browser, but I'm really not too sure. Can someone point me to somewhere that has info on how I could do this. Thanks.

    It's too complicated.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Why don't you try to make a single player text-based game first?

    Why not just download a macro?
    Saves time and allows all the keypresses u could want.
    C++ isnt too convienient in this area!

    Sorry, I thought you wanted to create a text based online game.

    Well, you might try the clipboard.
