    uploading files to a website in c++

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a way to make a program upload a text file to my website.

    Is there some sort of function for that?

    Thanks in advance!

    Usually files are uploaded by ftp, so you could make a ftp-client. But there are a lot of them so why build one.

    Yes, naturally I've tried using google to find the answer.
    There's a lot of code out there, but I haven't been able to find anything that actually
    - allows uploading files to a website
    - works (without giving tons of errors or refers to .h or .lib files that are made available)

    So for that reason I thought I'd ask if anyone in the visual C++ community knew of sample code that dos work.

    You don't upload files to a website, you upload files to a ftp server.

    - works (without giving tons of errors or refers to .h or .lib files that are made available)
    Ftp is a simple text command interface so you can send and receive files/info, nothing more.

    Here you go, a simple ftp class.

    Not quite. If the web page supports input type="file", then you can use HTTP to upload files as well.

    Yes, but that is a html tag, so the page itself supports this. OP wants to do it from his C++ code.

    If the web page supports that tag, then he can use httpwebrequest or similar to upload the text file to his website.
