    most likely you want to use
    #include <winsock2.h> instead?

    I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to use this program for, but I know that when I use winsock, I use the winsock2.h header, but it seems like you're looking for a different file...?

    try a google search if winsock isn't what you're looking for

    I socket.h soupoused to come with the porgram (something like a wrapper for sockets)? I don't remember it being any of the headers in *nix.

    actually, socket.h is part of the *nix GCC system includes. it is under the directory sys in /usr/include .

    although how they are calling it just "socket.h" makes me wonder as you usually have to include it with "sys/socket.h"

    Well here is the program i dunno how to execute/compile it

    Code:
    #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <sys/socket.h>
    #include <netinet/in.h>
    #include <netinet/in.h>
    #include <arpa/inet.h>
    #include <unistd.h>
    
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    
    int main(int argc,char* argv[])
    {
    
       if (argc < 2)
       {
           std::cout << "Please specify a stock symbol\n";
           exit(1);
       }
    
       struct sockaddr_in    address;
       address.sin_family    = AF_INET;
       address.sin_port      = htons(80);
       inet_aton("66.94.228.229",&address.sin_addr);
    
       int sockNo    = socket(PF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,0);
       int result    = connect(sockNo,(sockaddr*)&address,sizeof(struct sockaddr_in));
    
       if (result == 0)
       {
           /* We have a connection */
           std::string    getRequest("GET /d/quotes.csv?f=l1&s=");
    
           getRequest    += argv[1];
           getRequest    += "\r\n";
           write(sockNo,getRequest.c_str(),getRequest.length());
    
           char    buffer[2000];
           read(sockNo,buffer,2000);
    
           std::cout << "Stock Price of " << argv[1] << " is " << buffer;
       }
       else
       {
           std::cout << "Failed to Connect\n";
       }
       return(0);
    }

    There should be a button on your compiler called "Run". Press that.

    Ohh, lets play a game of "guess the compiler and OS"
    On second thoughts, lets just wait for the OP
    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.
