Actually, I start with downloading a URL, say www.washingtonpost.com and I get
the html source for the page. I have to parse that page to look for the jpgs,
gifs, mpegs in the page and download them individually. I use HTLoadToFile
with the URL of those jpgs,gifs etc. which are actually extracted as HTAnchor
from the main page.I convert this Anchor to char * before passing to
HTLoadToFile.
Example
HTLoadToFile("http://209.185.130.251/spacer.gif",request,filename).
Any suggestions ?
