Vladimir (or anyone) -

I am implementing a tiny one-post client DLL on NT, and libwww has
proven to be
difficult (I couldn't us Perl for an app-specific reason).

I found that HTML_dtd is not in a library, so I put it into my
project.

I almost got everything to link, when I added
HTProfile_newNoCacheClient() to
my code.

It seems that the profiles are not in the DLLs, so I added HTProfil.c to
my
project.  Then many more references were needed, including many I won't
use.

I will use the HTML parser, so converters are needed.
I do one GET for a remote html file (it is parsed and fed to
HTBlackHole()),
and one POST (so I need application/x-www-form-urlencoded).  Do I need
the
default encoders for doing the url-encoding?

I'm pretty sure I don't need files (HTFileInit() is not in the DLLs),
mime
or many other things in the profile.

Is there an easier way?

I should say I would have been lost without your binaries.

Thanks in advance,
Richard Reed
