Possible Networking Program Design :: Winsock
I have an idea for a program I would like to design and implement using C++. This program will produce a list of websites based on what the user wants to search. For example, let say the user enters "c++ programming." The program will log onto Google.com and conduct a search for "c++ programming." It will browse all responses pages and save all websites into a text file (one line per website URL). One done, the user will have a list of relevant websites.
From an implementation perspective, is the program above simple enough using C++ and Winsock? I should be able to setup a socket to connect to a search engine such as Google and/or Yahoo. That is about all I know right now. I do not know how to gather the information after I have connected to, say, a website. Please include a possible implementation using Winsock if you know of one.
