    You have to be more specific. Are you refering to POST'ingit on a website or just sending it over a socket? There are tons of possibilities for what you are asking.

    Well I really don't know, this is what I want to do:
    Make a program that can write data to a text file that is on the internet.
    (Conditions depend on what would be written.)
    Then, A program on a different computer would retrieve that written data.
    So in other words, The two programs would be communicating with each other over the net, even though, they are on both on different computers.

    It sounds like you probably need to do a good deal of research before you can write these applications. You sound like you don't quite know enough to actually write them.

    First you probably want to define your problem. Then probably the client/server model. Then probably read up on various communication protocols such as telnet, ftp, and http, all of which have RFC's you can read (just google for "rfc telnet" or "rfc ftp" to find it). Also do you fully understand whatever language you are planning on implementing all of this in? What language are you using? You probably should also read up on endianess.
    That's all that comes to mind right now. I'd say the most important part is understanding your language.
