    Hello

    OS: RedHat Linux

    I have to write a c program that should issue an HTTP GET request such as the following:

    http://foobar.com/Processbounce.php?remove=1 (The script updates a row
    in the database table)

    I tried using socket for that on port 80.
    I used functions:
    1) sockfd = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)
    2) connect(sockfd, (struct sockaddr *)&dest_addr, sizeof(struct
    sizeof(struct sockaddr))
    3) bytes_sent = send(sockfd, msg, len, 0) ; // msg contains the http
    headers get request

    The problem is that the script doesn't work. I tried many variations
    of http header get request with no success.

    Thanks
    Yehuda
