Episode II Return Of the newbie : Website IO Question
Hey! Its me again. The newbie. :-)
Well Ive got a lot of books and started learning the aspects of both C And VC6. And Im making real progress. But am I going in the right direction? I present to you, the mighty gurus, this question :
With the compilers and libraries avilable, is it possible for a program installed on several users systems to do IO on a website? Actually manipulate the files on site? Like data files consisting of just variable files and such?
Its for a board game. And I need to have file that represents posistions of the board and their status, reflect it to users, and read in the data only to change it if a move is made.
I know connecting users might be a more acceptable route, however, I really want to try a new concept I dreamt up.
Any want to lend me a brainstorm? - Zedd :confused:
to edit a website dynamically you have 2 options
either log the user into the website's server (dangerous and easily exploited, dont' know who would ever do this)
or the better option:
have an interface for the program (some sort of script) running on the website, and have the game talk to the script while it was playing, this script would then update the page with the users stats on it.

I'm not sure what you mean here but of course they need to be online if that's what you meant.
