Hoping that someone who knows the secrets of https
on the xemacs list will have a chance to look at this.
I have w3 set up to use https via openssl;
I'll attach the configuration which I got working using Bill
Perry's help a few months ago.
The problem is that many sites end up returning w3 a blank
(0 bytes) page
--the one I'm trying to overcome right now is
I'll append the w3 configuration for ssl that is know to at
least work part of the time:
(setq ssl-program-name "essl"
ssl-program-arguments '("s_client" "-quiet"
"-host" host "-port"
--and I use the following shell script (essl refered to above)
to wrapper openssl
#redirect stderr so emacs doesn't barf on opensll
exec openssl "$＠"
