SDL_net and File Browser Functionality

Fellow SDL enthusiasts,
I am new to SDL. I am using it now because of its excellent system
independence.
I installed SDL_net, and I was disappointed that it didn’t have any
DownloadFileFromURL functions. Is there a SDL library that does have
that functionality?

I am also wondering if there is a system independent way to get
directory information (like file listings and such).
Perhaps some sort of “SDL_Utility” library could be made that could
work towards allowing SDL to do every otherwise system dependent task
for you. Maybe it is out of the scope of what SDL was designed for,
but it would sure be handy.

If anyone has information about this, please pass it on.

No, but I think you’re looking for libcurl (http://curl.haxx.se/)
