I’m currently writing an application for Haiku which uses a dictionary database (sqlite3). I’d like to be able to update the dictionary from within the app by downloading the updated file over http or https. I could do it quite easily with libcurl but I’d rather use the native Haiku API.
I have looked at the documentation for the network kit but didn’t really find a good starting point except for BHttpRequest but I’m not sure if I’m supposed to use that directly or if there is some kind of layer above it.
It would be nice if someone could point me in the right direction where to start.
