Hello everyone,

I'm trying to improve myself on Winsock , so I wrote a code which can get the content of an website.Now I'm trying to post (upload) a file to a http website.Here is my code , what should I add to my code to work with POST? Thanks for your helps.

#include <iostream>           //Needed for input , output ops
#include <winsock2.h>         //Needed for Connecting , HTTP , etc.
#include <windows.h>          //Needed for Winsock
#include <string>             //Needed for recv() , send()
#include <conio.h>            //Needed for getch() command

#pragma comment(lib,"wsock32.lib")          //Winsock library

using namespace std;   //Easy way to use cout or cin without std::cout

int main()
{
	WSADATA wsa;
	SOCKET mysocket;
	struct hostent *host;
	char hostname[256];                          //definitions
	char directory[256];
	char select[256];
	char buffer[100000];
	DWORD size;
	char txtbuffer[100000];
	int i = 0;
	int s = 0;
	string command;
	SOCKADDR_IN SockAddr;
	HANDLE hFile;

	if(WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(2,2),&wsa) != 0)
	{
		cout << "Cannot start Winsock!" << endl;           //Starting Winsock
		cin.get();
	}
	
	mysocket = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,IPPROTO_TCP);         //Creating Socket
	
	cout << "Enter host name = "; 
	cin >> hostname;
	cout << endl;
	cout << "----------------------------------" << endl;              //Receiving host's name
	cout << endl;

	host = gethostbyname(hostname);              //Finding host by name

	SockAddr.sin_port = htons(80);
	SockAddr.sin_family = AF_INET;
	SockAddr.sin_addr.s_addr = *((unsigned long*)host->h_addr);           //Protocol definitions

	connect(mysocket,(SOCKADDR*)(&SockAddr),sizeof(SockAddr));      //Connecting

	cout << "Client :: --->> Connected!" << endl;

	cout << "----------------------------------" << endl;
	cout << endl;

	cout << "Type : ";
	cin >> select;
	cout << endl;

	cout << "Type ' / ' for scan or type directory of files you want to scan." << endl;     //input for the directory to the search
	cout << endl;

	cin >> directory;

	cout << endl;
	cout << "----------------------------------" << endl;
	cout << endl;

	hFile = CreateFile("C:\\test.txt",GENERIC_READ,FILE_SHARE_READ,NULL,OPEN_EXISTING,FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL,NULL);

	int dataRead = ReadFile(hFile,txtbuffer,sizeof(txtbuffer),&size,NULL);

	cout << "Content of file : ";

	while(dataRead > 0)
	{
		while(txtbuffer[s] > 0)
		{
			cout << txtbuffer[s];                         //Printing it to the screen
			s += 1;
		}
		break;
	}

	cout << endl;

	cout << "Size of File : " << s << endl;

	command += select;
	command += " ";
	command += directory;
	command += " HTTP 1.1\r\nHost : ";
	command += hostname;
	command += "\r\n";
	command += "Accept : */*\r\n";
	command += "User-Agent : BNet\r\n";
	command += "Content-Length : "What should I wrote here?"\r\n";
	command += "Content-Type : text/html\r\n";
	command += "\r\n\r\n";

	cout << command.c_str();

	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;

	send(mysocket,command.c_str(),command.length(),0);            //Request send

	cout << "Client :: --->> Request Sent!" << endl;
	cout << "----------------------------------" << endl;
	cout << endl;

	int dataLength = recv(mysocket,buffer,sizeof(buffer),0);       //Receive any answers

	while(dataLength != 0)
	{
		while(buffer[i] > 0)
		{
			cout << buffer[i];                         //Printing it to the screen
			i += 1;
		}
		break;
	}

	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;

	cout << "Bytes : " << i << endl;         //Bytes of scanned file

	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;

	closesocket(mysocket);             //Cleanup
	WSACleanup();

	getch();              //loop trigger
	//main();
}

So no answers? Please Noone knows about Winsock?
How can you be coders come -on ?
