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.

Through Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- also known as HTTP -- this program opens a remote Zip archive and transfers it into a local file on your computer.

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

And of course, you can download it directly here.

This was *exactly* what I'd been looking for! And.. specifically the reason I signed up!!

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.
