How to get content of webpage

Post by KironDevCoder » Mon Jul 08, 2019 9:28 pm

How do I do this? I know the buffer in https://github.com/devkitPro/3ds-exampl ... twork/http has the content, but how do I convert it to char* or anything else that can be printed on screen?

Firstly welcome to the forum & thanks for signing up and asking your question here.

You mentioned on the libcrtu issue that you're fairly new to C so I'm going to suggest that you do some reading. The online guide that's most recommended is Beej's Guide to C Programming although personally I prefer physical books for reference material.

To answer your question more directly though, converting the u8 buffer is really just as simple as casting to a char * i.e.

Code: Select all

char *mycharbuf = (char*) buf
If you're looking at parsing lines from this buffer (if for instance it's an html page) then you might want to look into fmemopen & fgets. It's difficult to offer concrete advice without more detail on what it is you wnat to achieve though.

It doesn't really work for me, it runs fine, but it won't print the content on the screen. Also

Code: Select all

char *mycharbuf = (char* buf)
didn't work so I changed it to

Code: Select all

char *mycharbuf = (char*) buf
but that shouldn't change it, right?
