    how to get an image from a website

    Ok, im still fairly new to internet programming. I was wondering, what would be the best way to grab an image from a website. Ive tried using a get, but when I get the response and take and try to use the body from the response, well... Im not doing it right, I know that much. It is distorted though at least its still recognized as a jpg file. Anyways, any help would be great. I just don't know of another good alternative, but like I said im still new to c++ internet programming.

    Different file type, but the method is the same.

    Did you open the output file in binary mode?
    If you didn't, windows will likely perform end of line translation, inserting a byte here or there, thus messing up the result.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
