    Tutorial/Guide on saving www source to a string

    Hello,
    As one of my school project I have to gather data from quite some webpages. I've been wondering, is there a fast way to open webpage and save it's source into a string using C++ (so I can easily access that data)?
    Well, basicly I'd need to know what to begin with... any tutorials/guides, or even keywords to google for anyone?

    Thanks in advance

    Winsock, perhaps? Assuming your first step is to find a way to retrieve data from a network...

    if the data gathering is something that doesn't need to be done at run-time, then you might want to write a simple bash script and use wget to download all of the data, then process the files after.

    Nope, processing doesn't have to be done in run-time, more important is to get all the sources automatically.
