lynx uses OpenSSL by default, and when GnuTLS support for broken
operating systems was added later, it was done using some sort
of wrapper.

I added the initial draft of the hostname validation code with
wildcard support, the proper one for OpenSSL, but am glad for
your links to better information how to really do it, as I did
that out of a real need, with only basic OpenSSL-fu, so I’ll
definitely review that code again.

Would have been cool for you to report this on the mailing list,
though… anyway, if you’ve got any more information someone who
wants/needs to implement a validating SSL client should have,
it would be very nice to point them out.


Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
