Hey guys , I have been asked by my boss to write some c++ code to read from a web page, this is alien to me as I have an electronics background and know nothing about networking.
I managed to find a c++ library called urlmon which has a method called downloadtofile() however that wasn't good enough for him as he actually wants to read from a page without downloading it. I am aware that socket programming is a particularly complex area and have searched the web without luck to try and find an easy way to do this. I have downloaded libraries like libcurl but cannot seem to get them to compile. Can anyone teach me an easy way to do this? (for windows please not linux)
