    Reading a Webpage

    Hey guys. I'm trying to write a program for an online game I play (Turn based). Anyway, the point is that I need a program that can visit the specific pages of the game and read the source code of the page. After that I can work out how to manipulate the source to do what I need, but for now, I'm just wondering if C has an equivelant to VB6's SendKeys, and how it'd be used. Thanks in advance

    EDIT: I'm just looking for an FAQ page or a tutorial of some sort

    C has no standard way to read sockets. Take a gander at Beej's guide (your local search engine) for a tutorial on socket programming.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    If I can't access a specific page using telnet, can I access it using sockets?

    Perhaps if I asked how this could be done for a Microsoft Word Document it would give me a clearer answer.

    Or even something as novel as reading all the intro threads of this forum (which is now the networking forum thanks to yours truly).

    >> If I can't access a specific page using telnet

    Why can you not do this?

    >> I'm just wondering if C has an equivelant to VB6's SendKeys

    A quick glance at the VB6's SendKeys documentation makes me think of the API function SendInput(..)

    Sorry to sound like an idiot, but that site's very hard to understand. I can see it as being useful for checking up on things you've already learnt, but I can't make head or tail of what it's talking about. A google search on SendInput gives me a couple of foreign sites, but nothing I can use.

    Perhaps a minor example, if it's not too much to ask? Say, something that Alt-Tabbed and then typed a letter (So that I'd know how to use single and multiple input types).
