Need help ~ can somebody confirm this codes works on Windows XP. If it doesn't, is there a way to make it? If you could provide a working code that would be excellent.

Do you get a compile error? What is the output when you run the program?

Nope ~ I manage to compile it without errors or warning, at least that was the build log says. It just stop after I tried to run the .exe file saying xxx.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close... Supposedly it should returns the urls that it finds.

I don't know the spider classes, but maybe you can sprinkle some debugging printf statements in the code so we see where it crashes?

@Gert ^^ looks like we have the same idea on how to look for the crash starter. I've posted a sample at http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/beginner/96083/ --> tweaked it so many times now. If I did something silly in the code please do correct me.

Instead of

You may want to try
fprintf(stderr, "At point 1\n");
because printf may buffer output. fprintf(stderr,....) will never buffer and print immediately. The \n will force a newline.

Tried the fprinf(stderr,) ~ still just shows 1 print then the program stopped. Well I've asks a few of my friends to test it, one managed to get it working up to certain point. He was using windows 7 and visual studio. But I still need to know the real problem before I can sleep peacefully. Any ideas? so I can dig google.

Well gonna say that it works on linux with minor correction. On windows (tried on windows XP) seems to be a bit hard to get it working (still not working for me), so I'll put a pause on it.

Anyone that can help, just post a working (on windows plaform) codes here ^^
