Ive been making an HTTP winsock wrapper and its all working great except for when i recv the data. I have narrowed down the problem to here:
	char buffer[100];
	*data = "";
	err = 100;
	while (err == 100)
		strset(buffer, ' ');
		err = recv(theSocket, buffer, sizeof(buffer), 0);

		cout << err << "\n";

		*data += buffer;

data is a string. The fatal exception seems to occur after its done receiving (when err != 100) This is my first time using winsock and im sure there are better ways to receive so if you have any suggestions id be glad to hear them. :) EDIT: Also, the socket is connected and a GET request was successfully sent. The data being returned is also correct (from what i saw in my packet sniffer) [Edited by - MitchellH on November 27, 2004 12:38:43 PM]
