There is definately something that is preventing LWP from  handling https. I don’t know anything about it, so I’ll have to  research it. Honestly, I’m not likely to get a chance to do that  until next week. If you (or Wes) can tell me what is required for  LWP to be able to go after https pages, I’ll make the changes. 

I had a handy test program available. I tried it on : it failed there, too. But it did display a more informative error message: Protocol scheme ‘https’ is not supported (Crypt::SSLeay not installed) So, I typed this

sudo cpan get Crypt::SSLeay    

Now my test script works great on badger. Frank, less adventurous than I, typed

up2date -i perl-Crypt-SSLeay    

which had equally fine results
