    Question Web browser based program

    Hi. I'm making one program with C++ builder 6. Program objectives are to get info from specific web pages and to do it fast, also to show results and web pages to user as fast as posible and program has to navigate in web pages using links. Pictures in all pages are basicly the same. So my idea is to download all pictures to one place and to browse in text mode only, so program would be able to do it fast. And later to text mode html body add pictures from computer and show it to user.

    So main question would be how to get htmt body from some url adress, and after editing and reading it would be able to save it in *.html and open in CppWebBrowser like normal web page

    Would be posible to do that or something like it?

    Examples would be very helpfull.

    P.S. sorry for my broken english

    Is there any particular reason you couldn't just set up a caching proxy server? Squid is one such.

    Check out WinINet; it works really great for me.

    maybe someone can give some real example? becouse this is my firs time when I try to write program in c++ builder which has to get data from internet. Till now I was able to open page and not a step more using CppWebBrowser. CppWebBrowser would be enought if it is posible to save page in text mode and would be able to control which pictures download and which to load fom specific location.
