having a problem writing the received data to file
if you compile and execute
blah.exe index.html
(ip is yahoo.com)
it'll scroll the source of index.html into console but the file does writeout properly
yea i know i should change the host from
but for now im only concerned about the data writing to file

.model flat, stdcall
option casemap: none

You should check how many bytes are in the rec buffer before you write to file.
Apart from that, if you only want to fetch files from web, may as well use wininet.
Much more simple to code and quick results, with less control over the transfer.
The choice is yours, it depends on what your motivation is.

well using
mov  , 0
          invoke StdOut, addr buff_sock

stdout shows the html output no problem but the writefile isnt writing it
i figure this is a good way to learn winsock stuff.. urldownloadtofile is just as simple but i like the harder way

I'm glad you like the harder way.
My suggestion is to include the ATC macros and my FStream incluide.
Ask me for my most recent version.
It has a Put method which is basically a proc with two params: ptr to data and sizeof data.
It wraps all the disk access stuff to make life a breeze.
FStream is a blend of the IFStream and OFStream classes.
Using oop can be easy and fun, and make asm feel like vb, if you want it to :)

  Like Iczleion says in his tut, use ioctlsocket with the option as FIONREAD to query the no. of bytes to be read. Then use this value to alloc mem using GlobalAlloc,LocalAlloc whatever. Then Write this buffer to file and free this buffer.
