Hi,
  I am looking into using the libwww library to perform some file and
MIME parsing related operations from the perspective of a helper 
application launched by the Netscape browser.  The intent of this
helper app is to take the content (which will be a multipart document) 
returned by a cgi-bin and extract the individual components into 
files.  After spending some time looking at the source and the 
documentation, I'm not even sure this is what the library was intended
for.
Given this, I have two questions:
1. Can I accomplish the above goal using libwww?

2. If so, what components of the library must I use?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Mark
