    wget IS written in C
    wget source code - Google Search
    Specifically, see Index of /gnu/wget
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I don't think wget uses libcurl, but it will probably save you a lot of work:

    libcurl - API

    With that you could write something that would cover the basic wget functionality in < 100 lines.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
