Hi all,
I wasn't sure where to post this, so I thought here might be best :D
I have to develop a program that takes a webpage and extracts information from it, so I was wander how would be the best way to do this, without using an external library(like curl)?
I.e. how does ones browser find words on a webpage when using ctrl+F, does it simply run a string search algorithm or are there other tricks to it? Another way to look at it, how would a web crawler know about the links etc, does it search for all <a></a> tags in the webpage or like before might there be some other trick to it?
Any pointers would be gladly appreciated :D
Thanks

I'd bet you Qt has some widgets that are searchable. I've never used them, but it might be worth looking into.

Also, are you sure you need to do this in c++? People tell me that perl is the way to go for string manipulation/searching/etc.
