Missing image

What's missing?

There are at least three features that we would need to add to turn this program into asimple but functional web browser.

  • A way for the user to enter the website of interest and to change it at will.
  • A "Back" button.
  • A "Forward" button.

Adding these features is not particularly difficult, but I will leave it as an exercise for the student to add these features andconvert this program into a functional web browser.

Run the program

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 11 , Listing 12 , and Listing 13 . Compile the code and execute it. Experiment with the code,making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changes behave as they do.

What's next?

The next module will introduce sockets for network programming.


This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.
