Libwww – the W3C Protocol Library
Libwww is a highly modular, general-purpose client side Web API written in C for Unix and Windows (Win32). It’s well suited for both small and large applications, like browser/editors, robots, batch tools, etc. Pluggable modules provided with libwww include complete HTTP/1.1 (with caching, pipelining, PUT, POST, Digest Authentication, deflate, etc), MySQL logging, FTP, HTML/4, XML (expat), RDF (SiRPAC), WebDAV, and much more. The purpose of libwww is to serve as a testbed for protocol experiments.
For more information on what it does refer to the libwww project.
The implementation of libwww that runs on the Warp, can be retrieved from the PIKA svn repository at the following location: http://svn.pikatech.com/pads/extra_packages/w3c-libwww/
For information on how to use svn to retrieve this package, see the generic instructions on the main xtras page.
