View Full Version : Downloading .csv files from the web within a program

08-22-2007, 09:01 PM

I'm looking to dowload data in a .csv from a web address and do some manipulating of the data in c++. I'm pretty new to c++ but not to computers or object oriented programming. What is the best way to go about developing this functionality and what is a good guide for learning how to do it. Is this something that requires socket programming? or can i find an add in module that will do most of this for me? ex. libwww

Thanks in advance for any help.

* Use libcurl (http://curl.haxx.se/) to do the downloading.
* Read the CSV line by line, doing you're manipulation on each line...

Can you be a bit more specific as to what you need help with?
