Help Need on CInternetSeccion

I'm starting to learn visual C++. I need to build a client which will connect to a server and
send a cgi text. The server will convert it to a wave format and send it back.
Could I use CHhttpConnection HTTP_VERB_POST to OpenRequest and then send a a
pointer this points to the string to be converted.

Can I execute this file form dos command. If so How?
CInternetSession Connection;
      CHttpConnection* pHttpConnection = NULL;
      CHttpFile* pFile = NULL;

      try
      {
       pHttpConnection = Connection.GetHttpConnection("www.wrox.com");
       pFile = pHttpConnection->OpenRequest(CHttpConnection::HTTP_VERB_GET,"/");
       pFile->SendRequest();      
      }
      catch (CInternetException* pEx)
      {
            pEx->ReportError();
            pEx->Delete();

Thanks for your time.

This code will use HTTP_VERB_POST to send a form to the server.

      CString str;

         cout << endl;

      pFile->Close();
      delete pFile;
      pConnection->Close();
   }

   return nRetCode;
}



If you want to have the server convert some data from one format to another and return it, you'll need to write software on the server side to do that. And you'll need to make sure what you POST, and the way you read it back, exactly matches what's going on with the server software.
