I want to load a webpage and save it to disk, using an existing TCP/IP or (better) WINSOCK connection to the internet. Is this possible using Delphi (or even Win95 alone, script editor or so)?
100 points for a "yes" and description :-)

Yes.. You can do that with delphi. How ever you need.
1. HTTP Protocol Component that support GET/PUT method.  I recomment  Freenet component pack.  you can free download from DSP.
2. HTMLViewer Component . I recomment THtmlViewer  free download from  http://www.pbear.com/

So you can create your Web Browser in 1 Hour and no problem to save webpage to disk.

sound good - I just want to save the source to HD and then extract some data from it. Do you have an URL for the Freenet stuff?

Hi Christian,

there is also FPiette components. They have a example included that already saves the source to disk.

The URL is:

http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/indexuk.htm 

Take a look at HTTPCLI or ICS if you want a complete Internet package.

It's freeware and very, very friendly. The things work for themselves. You know what I mean ;-))

Regards,
Itamar
