Hi All,

I have a basic Client up and running, getting HTML documents from the Server.

What I would now like to do is respond to some of the links in that document 
with further requests to the Server, and decode the MIME encoded objects 
relating to images etc.

Unfortunately, whilst I understand the basic concepts of streaming the HTTP 
protocol to the MIME Parser to the Chunk Decoder, I do not have any idea about 
how to implement this, nor have I seen any example source code.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction with regards to examples 
etc?

No offence to the libwww documentation writers, but there are quite a few gaps 
in the guides :)

Thanks,

Damien
