Help with HTTP


Only Me!
I want to know if theres any libraries available with HTTP functions for retrieving webpages etc. I used to use WinInet with windows. Im looking for something similar with linux. Please dont suggest writing it at the socket level. (although I could)

If you don't mind using Qt there is a qhttp class that will do this for you.

BTW... if you download the Qt development tools they have a program call assistant and it has a great reference all there classes, so you can use that to get the specifics.
