hi ,
  Am working on a solo project for a program in c++ that,called from an html
   page output  another html document..so far so good.
   My problem is that I havent figure out, once my html file is created,
   how to get the browser to go to that page.
   Should it be the job of the c++ code or the posting method in the "calling
   "html document to direct the browser to that page?
   Does anyone have any example I could study?
   Any input would be appreciated

You send your output as follows:
cout << "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
cout << "<html><head><title>Title</title><background="#000000";
cout << "text="#FF0000" ></head><body>text</body></html>"
cout << "\n\n"

or, if your page is in a text file, read it in and send it to cout;  This is the CGI C routine I'm talking about here.

Or, you can send a redirect:
cout << "Location: http://www.site.com/page.html\n\n";

I have more examples although they are oriented around perl, they still apply.  Let me know and I will email it to you.
