open a url in c++


Hi, I'm learning some basic programing, I am currently learning how to work with files, I can open a regular *.txt file, copy it's contents into another *.txt and save it.

I use:

fstream test1("test1.txt", ios::in); // to open the file

ofstream out1("out1.txt", ios:ut); //to create the new file

But I would like to know how to open a url.

thanks in advance

you might find libcurl handy.

http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/cplusplus/

and if you want to use more direct methods of access, it's source code is a good place to look for the basic inner workings.
