Http Client Side Programming --- Any Libraries Avl.

Hi,
I want to write a C Program which communicates with a Http Server.
Does any one know of "any good libraries" for this purpose.
I tried seraching for lib calls using man in linux, but with little 
success.

Does Standard Linux Distribution contain any Http Libraries ?.

I saw libwww.a in /usr/lib file. But i could not find man pages for any of 
the functions listed in libwww.a.

if any one knows any popular Library for Http Client and Server Dev. Please
Let me know.


Any help in this regard is appreciated.


Thanks,
Ram

Take a look at cURL at http://curl.haxx.se/. Some alternatives available 
  at http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/competitors.html

This is the w3c's sample implementation of what you are looking for.

I'm sure that libwww.a is something you (and anyone else on this
planet) don't want use - it's just to ugly. There are many others for
many languages, Perl has a good library and curl for non-high-permance
C leve.
