CGopherConnection Class

class CGopherConnection : public CInternetConnection


The MFC class CGopherConnection manages your connection to a gopher Internet server. The gopher service is one of three Internet services recognized by the MFC WinInet classes.

The class CGopherConnection contains a constructor and three additional member functions that manage the gopher service: OpenFile, CreateLocator, and GetAttribute.

To communicate with a gopher Internet server, you must first create an instance of CInternetSession, and then call CInternetSession::GetGopherConnection, which creates the CGopherConnection object and returns a pointer to it. You never create a CGopherConnection object directly.

To learn more about how CGopherConnection works with the other MFC Internet classes, see the article Internet Programming with WinInet. For more information about using the other two supported Internet services, FTP and HTTP see the classes CHttpConnection and CFtpConnection.
