Hello out there,

Just for the heck of it, how do you retrieve a web page off the internet?  I would just like to get the HTML source, I don't need anything fancy (i.e. no web browser, just the source).  I am using MFC in case that would change your answer.

Thank you very much!

You can download a whole class dealing with that from http://www.codeguru.com/internet/index.shtml

In fact, there are several classes there that let you download things from the internet.  My personal favorite is:

If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask.  Thanks!

Sure.  I am glad you like that site.  I find it most helpful.  The discussion forum can be a great help when you run out of points or if you want to save up for awhile (like me).

Glad I could help! :-)
