I can't think of any open source ones off hand, but that doesn't
mean there aren't any.  Have you taken a look at some of the
programs mentioned on our links page:


It's possible some are written in C.

That said, the task of extracting URI domains from email messages
is non-trivial particularly from spams, which often have
obfuscation methods that must be undone.  Something like the
SpamAssassin code can be a good starting point, though it
has the advantage of a regular expression language, mail
method decoding tools, etc.
