I am investigating the possibility of creating my own interface for the cprog.com forums. It would be my own Win32 interface, including an edit control and forum selection box, etc. A user could post new threads and replies, as well as viewing existing threads, all from this application, without using Internet Explorer.
The part I do not know how to do is submitting the text for a new thread or reply. I think I will be able to receive an HTML file and parse it to show existing posts. There must be an API for downloading files from the net, so I should be alright there.
Is this possible, and if so, how do I do it?
