Hi. I have written a program which will open and parse an XML file. It works fine when the file is on my computer.I want the program to be able to access this xml file remotely. Below is a quick example of what i'm trying to do but it will not work. How can I load in this file from that location. ifstream textFile; char sentence[] = "http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss.xml"; cout << sentence << endl; //open stream and read in sentence char *tempStr = new char[500]; textFile.open(sentence, ios::in); thanks in advance.
