return QFile::copy(fromPath, toPath); from the web

Is there a way to use 


return QFile::copy(fromPath, toPath);


But instead of copying local files, copy a file from the web?



If not what is the best alternative?

Re: return QFile::copy(fromPath, toPath); from the web

QFile's constructors only take strings that represent paths to files on the device and not URIs. You should probably take a look at using QnetworkAccessManager ( see examples here  https://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/cascades/qnetworkaccessmanager.html  ) perhaps wrapping it in a class to make it easy to use if you intend to reuse the functionality.
