[Lynx-dev] SSL errors and retrieval

from #lynx on (IRC):

A user wants to retrieve something from an HTTPS website, like this:

lynx -dump --accept_all_cookies -auth=foo:bar

He says it works without the -dump, but doesn't work with it.
I told him to install the SSL cert bundle, but it didn't seem
to help (no idea why), and I cannot reproduce it because I
don't have that -auth= info.

But the basic idea of having a command line option which over-
rides all SSL warnings (self-signed cert, no common name, can't
find local issuer, etc.) would make sense to me, for these who
really want it. (Please do not add that to -dump automatically,
for these who DO care about SSL.)

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
