    Make a simple Http call (GET or POST) from Linux on Edison ... what library should I be looking at?

    DaveFer

      Hi All -

       

      Once again, please excuse my Linux naivté but ... I want to send a hearbeat to my RESTful web service on my laptop from my various Edison bots.

       

      I'd prefer to do this from C++ in Eclipse (as opposed to the Arduino IDE or the XDK) -- for personal reasons. (I'm doing a demo and want to demo the different ways of programming the Edison.)

       

      So, in Linux on the Edison, which library or libraries and calls should I be looking at to send an HTTP POST or GET? (Something like http://MyServer/MyService/Heartbeat)

       

      As you can see, I don't even want to get a response. Just want to send an HTTP msg.

       

      Thanks,

       

         - Dave F.
