application message sending to remote users


I am looking for a way to send a message from an application on a linux box which is written in C++ to a website and the website automatically sends the message to users such as cell phones (probably text msgs), pagers, and possibly other devices. I do not see that it is necessary to use C++ if there is another language that is welll suited to such a task.

Has anyone done something like this?

Can anyone direct me to information that would help ?


Thanks in advance for all of your help,
Tom

Exactly what is it you don't know how to do? Transfer data over the network? Talk HTTP? Make the server do what you want?

For data transfer, use a socket library. For HTTP, there should be libraries for that as well, in most languages. I don't know which server you're talking about, so obviously I can't help with that.

Have a look at GNU Common C++.

Also, read ESR's `Smart Questions'.
