HTTP download...

my program need to download binary files from internet using http protocol.

I use WinInet library to perform this task. The problem is that process is very slow. Connecting only takes about 5 secs (not constant) and download process takes 2-3 times more than another compiled program I have.

May someone help me with WinInet API or recommend another API to perform a task?

i recently had the EXACT same problem you are having, where i needed to get a file over HTTP protocol..

I found a freeware Delphi component to do this...

I'm now using this component...It works perfectly, and it does everything i need it to..

Its called THTTPCli, and you can download it from this address:

the ZIP file has the necessary files you need to install the component, and it comes with excellent examples..

i highly reccommend that people use this component..

Yes $)
I recommended to X_Kalibur, and recommend you now :)
