Hi all --

I just joined the list because I saw a post (from way back in 2002) about
using ruby and OpenSSL on win32.  I was wondering if anyone has had any
recent successes, and if so, what shenanigans they involved.

I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what my problem here is; I've tried
three different ways to script access to a web page and they're all failing
when tried over https -- which makes me suspect it's a problem with my
openssl; specifically, with what versions I have installed.

Samples follow:

Win32, Ruby 1.8.4p3, OpenSSL 0.9.7b for windows.
Trying to manipulate a web page.  They all fail over SSL.  Calls using
similar tools to non-SSL pages do not fail.
 
Three different approaches:
 
1.
-----
require 'mechanize'
 
$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
	"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
	]
 
agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
agent.user_agent_alias = 'Windows IE 6'
 
p = agent.get($urls[0])

require 'open-uri'
 
$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
	"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
	]
 
open($urls[0]) { |r|
	puts "New Cookie: #{r.set_cookie}"
}

require 'net/http'
require 'net/https'
 
$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
	"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
	]
 
$uris = $urls.inject(Array.new) { |a,x| a << URI.parse(x) }
 
$uri_form = $uris[0]
http = Net::HTTP.new($uri_form.host, $uri_form.port)
http.use_ssl = true
 
r,d = http.get($uri_form.path,{})
