First of all, I hope i'm posting this in the correct forum. I'm fairly new, so please let me know if I sound like an idiot. I'm currently working on a C++ program that works with real stock information just as practice.
The IEX API seemed heavily recommended, so I decided to use that. After reading the manual, however, i'm very confused on how to actually implement fetching the data into my C++ program. From what I can understand the iex API is a web based API, so in order to fetch data would I use libcurl in order to make an http request? I apologize if I sound like a fool, but I just want to learn - please let me know if I am even on the right track to figuring this out. Do you have any, or know of any, simple programs that use this API via C++?
If it's any help, i'm currently running Windows 10. Thx love you all let me know
Edit: Also, my heart isn't set on using iex, so if you know a better way to fetch stock data, please let me know!
