Hi I am implementing a HTTP client in C++ and I need this function to "URL-encode" a given string. I know it's a standard function in Java, as well as in .NET platform.

Is there a (Visual) C++ implementation out there?

'InternetCanonicalizeUrl()' should do what you want.

Ooops, forgot the link http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/networking/wininet/reference/functions/internetcanonicalizeurl.asp 

See also http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wceinet/htm/wininet_6.asp - quote:

The InternetCanonicalizeUrl function can be used to canonicalize URLs. InternetCanonicalizeUrl does not verify that the URL passed to it is canonicalized or that the URL it returns is valid.

The URL functions operate in a task-oriented manner. The content and format of the URL passed to the function is not verified. The calling application should track the use of these functions to ensure the data is in the intended format. For example, the InternetCanonicalizeUrl function would convert the character % into the escape sequence ?%25? when using no flags
