Hi,
you can use a 'popen' call -
#include <stdio.h>

main()
{
  FILE *fptr;
  char line[130]; /* line from wget*/
   
  fptr = popen("wget http://example.com", "r"); /* Issue the wget command. */

/* Read a line */
  while ( fgets( line, sizeof line, fptr))
  {
    printf("%s", line);

/* or process the 'line' otherwise as needed */
  }
  pclose(fptr);
}
