Web data extraction using Visual C++

Web data extraction using Visual C++

Web data extraction using Visual C++

I was wondering if the is a way to extract web data using visual C++. If I tried to do it though the Windows console attached to my project would that work or is there a better method

RE: Web data extraction using Visual C++

I have seen many ways, but strictly I am using visual c++ not visual studio, I have seen URLDownloadToFile, wget and curl but I can't get any of them to work, here is my code:


#include "stdafx.h"
#include <urlmon.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <tchar.h>

using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    HRESULT hr = URLDownloadToFile(NULL, _T("http://www.nfl.com"), _T("test2.html"), 0, NULL);
    cout << "hi" << endl;
    return 0;
