Hi Sameeran,

What exactly is your goal?

The libwget/ directory contains all the code for libwget, the HTTP library that
powers wget2.

The examples/ directory contains a bunch of small toy programs which show how
one can use libwget.

Sadly, there is no single source file you can read which contains the entire
process of accepting a URL, parsing it and downloading the said web page. If
you are interested in the logic of downloading a web page, you should look at:
`libwget/http_highlevel.c`. This file contains the very high level API for
downloading a webpage. From there, you can go deeper into the specific details
of constructing HTTP requests and parsing the responses.
