Take Screenshot in C
Posted on 2005-04-17
Just a question.
I am about to start a new project where I hope to develop a program which will screenshot games as you play, and upload the image to a webserver.
Firstly - I need to know if C would be the best language to use?
How easy is it for C to take a screenshot and resize/convert it to a 600*480 JPG??
How easy is it to open a HTTP connection?
I can make a PHP script to accept a file upload - I just need to know how easy it is to actually upload the file...
I haven't done much on this level with C...
This question will probably end up with points being split.
So PLEASE even if someone has posted something GREAT.
I will award anything useful!
(btw, google is so hard, when searching for example "c" code. type: screenshot + c in goolge and you get 50,000 results that don't help)
