making HTTP requests

Does the c++11 have any library they added to the standard c++ that allows you to make http requests?

If they don't do they plan on ever added that into the standard c++?

Also if they don't what 3rd party libraries allow you do this? Do you guys ever do this much in C++ anyways, or do you switch to a higher level language to such things, and just call the other higher level language script within c++?

C++ has boost.asio. There are some HTTP examples here: but they may be too low-level for casual use. The related higher-level library is cpp-netlib, but it's nowhere as mature.

As for the standard library, the networking library is work in progress right now, it is looking like it's going to be based on both boost.asio and cpp-netlib
