    Downloading .csv files from the web within a program

    Hello,

    I'm looking to dowload data in a .csv from a web address and do some manipulating of the data in c++. I'm pretty new to c++ but not to computers or object oriented programming. What is the best way to go about developing this functionality and what is a good guide for learning how to do it. Is this something that requires socket programming? or can i find an add in module that will do most of this for me? ex. libwww

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Matt

    * Use libcurl to do the downloading.
    * Read the CSV line by line, doing you're manipulation on each line...

    Can you be a bit more specific as to what you need help with?
