	I hope this is the right place for my questions, i'm very new to www-lib as to HTTP
protocol, and since some time ago i want to make an application for linux like coopernic for
windows, if you have not seen it it's a program that receives some keywords about a topic and
consults many server like altavista, yahoo, infoseek, netscape search engine, and more and returns
to you all the results in a single html formatted page, i want to do this in linux, first i wanted
to do my own implementation of HTTP in C++ but i realized it's not that simple but when i found out
about libwww i decided to use for all the HTTP and HTML stuff (of course my program will be FREE
under GNU license), i still getting inside how libwww works but my question now is, how could i
determine "dinamically" the arguments for the CGI program in the server, i.e. suppose my program
first gets the index.html from the search server x, how could it in run time determine how to send
the request to the server, i.e. how to determine the full string
http://www.x.uvx/cgi-bin/query-X&param1=value1&param2=value2&...&paramN=valueN does libwww so it ??
How ?? if not the how could i do ??? is there a better way to do it that downloading always
index.html from servers ??? (for example coopernic stores some information in local files but these
have no text format so i can't know what it stores in them :( )

	Thanks !!!!!
