The best is to start with Wget2. It comes with a library (libwget) that
makes it easy to download
and parse HTML/CSS/XML files. You'll also find some simple C examples in
the examples/ directory.

Have a look at https://gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2, there are instruction
how to get the sources
and how to build+install wget2 and libwget.
