llppcc has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Helo, I am trying to connect to httpS using www::mechanize , but every time get a segmentation fault.
I am Using RHEL 4 , openssl version is 0.9.8b .
problem Detail:
When I try to mechanize->get() any http URL it works , but whenever I put in an httpS Url it gives segmentation fault .
Tried another CPAN module to access web , same thing is happening.
Is it a fault with openssl ? Can you help me tracing the fault line .
Thank you
Here is basic code i m trying to run ----------
#!/usr/bin/perl use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1); my $url2 = " +msppjph=1&tw=0&fs=1&fsa=1&fsat=1296000&lc=1033&_lang=EN&bk=1633438"; $mech->get($url2); print $mech->content; print $mech->forms;

    Well, running your code as is, I get the following error:
    Error GETing +&msppjph=1&tw=0&fs=1&fsa=1&fsat=1296000&lc=1033&_lang=EN&bk=1633438: +Protocol scheme 'https' is not supported (Crypt::SSLeay not installed +) at line 5

    After installing Crypt::SSLeay it appears to work as I expect you want it to.


      Thanx Darren
      I've linked the Crypt::SSLeay with older version of OpenSSL(0.9.7) and it is working fine :)

    In view of the earlier suggestions, I expect that your UserAgent will be working soon. If not, my first attempt when troubleshooting https connections is to check if the server is properly configured:

    $ openssl s_client -connect localhost:443 -state -debug GET / HTTP/1.0
