Winsock HTTP talking to Google

Recommended Posts

I'm messing around with Winsock and HTTP and I was trying to connect to Google to do a search. Google seems to not like me, and I cannot get any data from them at all. I can search using Yahoo, which is nice. Any ideas on why a simple GET www.google.com/search?q=frown doesn't work here? Thanks!

You should use SOAP.

Go to the link provided by the AP. The web service is really easy to use. I got my C++ app up and running with it in about 20 minutes. If you have any questions about how to use it, PM me.

You just need to properly format your HTTP request. Google doesn't know the difference between you and IE if you set it up right.
