I'm getting the following error when executing in Ruby 1.8.4 (tried it
both on Windows and OS X). I did not see this problem in 1.8.2.

Here is the code:

    def init_server(url)
      @url = URI.parse(url)
      @server = Net::HTTP.new(@url.host, @url.port)
      @server.use_ssl = @url.scheme == 'https'
      @server.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE

      # run ruby with -d to see SOAP wiredumps.
      @server.set_debug_output $stderr if show_debug
    end

And here is the error:

NoMethodError: You have a nil object when you didn't expect it!
The error occured while evaluating nil.verify_mode

I found a reference to the same problem on a Debian bug list
(http://www.mail-archive.com/removed_email_address@...)
but no resolution.

Did something change between 1.8.2 and 1.8.4 in regards to handling
HTTPS connections?

Thanks!

You should first verify that Rails isn't interfering.  Try this script:

$ cat ssl.rb
require 'net/https'

url = URI.parse 'https://www.wamu.com'
server = Net::HTTP.new url.host, url.port
server.use_ssl = url.scheme == 'https'
server.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE
response = server.get url.request_uri
puts response.code

$ ruby -v ssl.rb

Thanks for the reply. I tried your script on Windows and got the same
error. I'll try it on my Powerbook when I get home.

Did you find the problem?

I have had exactly the same - my script worked under 1.8.2 - upgrade to
1.8.4 and boom!

I have solved the problem for myself.

I had installed 1.8.4 on top of 1.8.2 and since some of the libraries
have moved locations I suspect the old versions were still around and
messing things up.

I did a clean install of 1.8.4 and everything was fine.

Thanks to Aoki san who kindly helped me with some debugging.

I just re-encountered this problem and it turns out I had an old
version of https.rb in my site_ruby directory. I cleaned that up and
everything is working fine now.
