I think my wording confused you.
The images I'm interested to download are the return results of a google page.
For example, if I post a query to google, and the page will contain lots of images, embedded in html tags. It seems that xml parsing is necessary to retrieve the image urls.
An example on the libcurl site:
see "HTML parsing".
The main.c alone contains 6200 lines of code!
I did some reading and found a pretty good xml parsing tool: libxml
But again, it looks a bit overwhelming ...
I definitely understand that's what it should be like about cs: keep learning new stuff. But given my current situation, it's a bit awkward because I don't have that much time.
Yeah, so if you have some suggestions, like, those that can help me avoid the nasty html parsing or some good and handy tools for the task of "downloading imgs from google image search result page", please let me know!
I guess I'll have to do it the hard way if no shortcuts are available.
Thanks again! :)
