    Shortest VB6 HTML scrape code

    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone has some insight as to the easiest (least code) way to accomplish an equivalent of the following using VB6:

    #---begin python code---

    import urllib
    data = urllib.urlopen("http://www.google.com").read()
    print data

    #---end python code---

    In case this isn't self explanatory, these three lines of python code will fetch the HTML source of a page and print it to the screen.

    So far, the things that I can think of are:
    winsock, wininet, asyncread, XMLHTTPRequest

    Thanks in advance!

    XMLHTTPRequest is pretty straightforward. There's also the OpenURL method of the Internet Transfer control.
