Your question is underspecified.

For what platform and dev tools?
What protocol on the URL?
Does it need to be raw socket or can you use a client class from your dev environment?

XML line-by-line does not make sense as you will end up with a bunch of nonsense text that needs to be reassembled into usable XML which means also writing XML parsing code.  Why not use an XML parser?

I would recommend POCO toolkit and heres sample source from their unit tests that reads HTTP response line by line. I agree with drichards that reading XML line by line does not make much sense even for a parser that supports streaming.

This is a Twitter client written with POCO (from samples), it does pretty much everything you might be interested in
