Hello guys... I'm really new in C coding and I need help

I'm working on a school project.I have to put downloadable urls into a txt file and then the program have to read the file and download them.Since we never talked about this in my school,I really can't know how to do this...
I need just the part of the code wich is reading the file and downloading the stuff(if possible)

Any help is precious for me!

THANKS in advance!

You need to look into fopen, and cURL. You might be able to use fopen to download the urls, but I doubt it.

Maybe I can create a pointer and make it pointing at the 1st url in the txt file,after that i can use "system("start POINTER");" and after every loop the pointer will ++ until the eof...

hmm...I have to try it when I go home,this may work :)

Well, I suppose you could try that, or you could just use fread or fgets to read the file...
