Socket programing in windows XP
I wanted to write a simple socket windows program to connect to a site and read a http header and the page with POST and GET Request. This was a easy task in UNIX as gnu library are easily avaiable of that. In windows system, I dont want to buy either VC++ or Borland C++ and these are expensive. I want to use free simple c/c++ complier like Turbo C++, etc. I tried searching for socket libraries for windows, but all of them seems to support either VC++ or Borland complier... Does any one know about a simple c/c++ lib for windows that i can user to make my own program... I dont mind downloanding another C/c++ complier for windows as long its free... I am using windows xp home and currently have turbo c++ 1.0...i know its a very old complier, but works like a gem...
