Save HttpWebResponse XML file to Local Computer

Hi,

I "get" (download) a XML file using the code listed below.

How can I save that to a local file? For the life of me I can't figure it out.

Thanks
Dim wr As HttpWebRequest = _
                CType(WebRequest.Create("http://thewebsite.com/thexmlfile.xml"), HttpWebRequest)
        Dim wrp As HttpWebResponse = CType(wr.GetResponse, HttpWebResponse)
        Dim s As Stream = wrp.GetResponseStream

Open in new window

Use streamreader and streamwriter objects
I use c# instead of VB, so forgive me if syntax is off a bit, but something like the following:

Dim wr as HttpWebRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create("http://thewebsite.com/thexmlfile.xml")
Dim wrp as HttpWebResponse = wr.GetResponse

Dim sr as StreamReader = new StreamReader(wrp.GetResponseStream)
Dim sw as StreamWriter = new StreamWriter("thelocalxmlfile.xml", false)
sw.Write(sr.ReadToEnd)
sr.Close
sw.Close
