    Note : The following source will only work with non-chunked encoding servers...The servers which have enabled the encoding set to chunked will not properly work with this source...

    And I assume basic knowledge of SOCKETS UNIX API and C language as prerequisites...


    Source


    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<netdb.h>
    #include<sys/types.h>
    #include<sys/socket.h>
    #include<arpa/inet.h>
    #include<string.h>
    
    #define RESPONSE_RECV_LIMIT 3000
    #define SOURCE_START_IDENTIFIER "<!DOCTYPE"
    #define SOURCE_START_IDENTIFIER2 "<html>" 		//this is the name of the identifier that the 
    #define FILENAME "/"		 		// ENTER THE FILENAME HERE
    #define PORT	"80"			 		// default for web-browsers
    
    int main(int argc , char *argv[])
    {
    	if(argc != 2)
    	{
    		printf("Usage %s : hostname\n",argv[0]);
    		return(0);
    	}
    
    	char response[RESPONSE_RECV_LIMIT+1];  // + 1 is for null
    	char *source;
    	int sockfd,newfd,err;
    	char ip[INET6_ADDRSTRLEN];
    	struct addrinfo *p,hints,*res;
    	int len,len_s;
    	int yes=1;
    	struct sockaddr_storage their_addr;
    	socklen_t addr_size;
    	void *addr;
    	char *ver;
    	char request[100];
    
    	sprintf(request,"GET %s HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: %s\r\n\r\n",FILENAME,argv[1]);
    
    	// print the request we are making
    
    	printf("%s\n\n",request);
    
    	memset(&hints,0,sizeof hints);
    
    	hints.ai_socktype=SOCK_STREAM;
    
    	hints.ai_family=AF_UNSPEC;
    
    	if ((err = getaddrinfo(argv[1],PORT, &hints, &res)) != 0)
    	{
    		fprintf(stderr, "getaddrinfo: %s\n", gai_strerror(err));
    		return 1;
    	}
    
    	for(p=res;p!=NULL;p=p->ai_next)
    	{		
    		if( ( sockfd = socket(p->ai_family,p->ai_socktype,p->ai_protocol) ) == -1)
    		{
    			printf("Socket error !!!\n");
    			return(0);
    		}
    
    		if (connect(sockfd, p->ai_addr, p->ai_addrlen) == -1) 
    		{
    			close(sockfd);
    			perror("client: connect");
    			continue;
    		}
    	}
    
    	if(send(sockfd,request,strlen(request),0) < strlen(request))
    	{
    		perror("Send Error!!\n");
    	}
    
    	freeaddrinfo(res);
    
    	if( recv(sockfd,response,RESPONSE_RECV_LIMIT,0) == 0 )
    	{
    		perror("Recv : ");
    		return(1);
    	}
    
    	close(sockfd); // we dont need it any more
    
    //	printf("%s",response); // for debugging purposes
    
    	source = strstr(response,SOURCE_START_IDENTIFIER);
    
    	if(source == NULL)
    	{
    		source = strstr(response,SOURCE_START_IDENTIFIER2);		
    	}	
    	printf("%s\n",source);
    	return(0);
    }
    
    Compiling :-
    Code:
    gcc getSource.c -o getSource 
    

    Sample



    I am providing sample with apache on my server …

    You can see the settings here:-

    Code:
    aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/articles/C/getSrc$ telnet 127.0.0.1 80
    
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    
    Connected to 127.0.0.1.
    
    Escape character is '^]'.
    
    GET / HTTP/1.1
    
    HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
    
    Date: Mon, 31 Jan 2011 16:04:45 GMT
    
    Server: Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu)
    
    Vary: Accept-Encoding
    
    Content-Length: 301
    
    Connection: close
    
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
    
    Output :-
    Code:
    aneesh@aneesh-laptop:~/articles/C/getSrc$ ./getSource 127.0.0.1
    
    GET / HTTP/1.1
    
    Host: 127.0.0.1
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    <html><body><h1>It works!</h1>
    
    <p>This is the default web page for this server.</p>
    
    <p>The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.</p>
    
    </body></html>
