I've been hacking w3c and running it under gdb for two days,
and I've learned a number of things, but this is very
time consuming.

Looking at the archives for this mailing list, I find most
users of the library are not novices with respect to the
library; I am.

I want to do some simple things, like redirect the output
stream from a file (STDOUT) to a character array, so I
can buffer multiple html streams obtained from multiple
requests to a cgi executable on a remote server (via -post and -form)
capabilities in w3c.

In order to do the above, I need to figure out how to get
out of the event loop long enough to change the contents
of formfields via
HTAssocList_replaceObject(...)
{I figured this function out at any rate}
... from what I've read, I gather that once a request has been serviced
by a server it can't be used again... ?

The library API is described really well, and the ComLine and LineMode code
are good examples, but the two of them don't cover the hows-and-whys
in sufficient detail for a newbie.

DOES ANYONE HAVE A POINTER TO MORE TUTORIAL EXAMPLES like the ones in
w3c-libwww-5.0a/Library/User/Using/Startup.html?

Thanks.			-John
