Try this: dmd htmlget.d wsock32.lib or dmd htmlget.d ws2_32.lib notice the link line it now reads: D:\d\dmd\bin\..\..\dm\bin\link.exe htmlget,,,wsock32.lib+user32+kernel32/noi; instead of: D:\d\dmd\bin\..\..\dm\bin\link.exe htmlget,,,user32+kernel32/noi; by default dmd only links with user32, and kernal32. You need to link with wsock32.lib (winsock v1) or ws2_32.lib (winsock v2) in order to use sockets. Regan -- Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/m2/
