C++ Remote files

I am having trouble reading remote files using C++.

This is a simple question: How do I access files through the http:// protocol?

C++ does not support that in the core language. You need a sockets library.

The answer to your question will depend on what sockets library you use.

That's just it, I don't know what library to use, how to use it, or where it is Confused

Google is your friend. Search for "c++ http get" and you'll probably get dozens of libraries.

libferit is one such library. http://www.westga.edu/~stu7440/projects/ferit.html

There are many others. Google.

And before, you must understand the principal of Sockets and its working modes ... You must know that the concept is used in almost all programming language(C/C++, Visual Basic, JAVA ... ), so if you really want to create apps with HTTP support, you must learn how to use sockets !

Idea

Not necessarily. That's true if you want to write http get code from scratch or using low level socket routines. But if you don't want/need to do either, you can probably find libraries that can do an http get with a single function call - no need to mess around with sockets.
