My comment:
This particular example let you download VFP tables containing the recent data of this reference:
- list of functions
- list of examples
- function groups
- list of libraries

After that you can work with this data locally.

Though the primary task of this code is to demonstrate InternetOpenUrl function.

And of course, you can download it directly here.

Also, if you're interested, I've modified the source a bit to show how you can achieve this, in a password protected site by passing the USER/PW in the 'Open' call and getting the appropriate handle.
