Having trouble connecting to a site via net/http

Hello,

In my app I have the need to screen scrape a HTTPS page and I’m
getting a strange error that I don’t understand. I can reproduce the
error with a secure google page, which I do in the test code below.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Use net/https to connect over ssl…

require ‘net/https’
require ‘uri’

uri = URI.parse(‘https://adwords.google.com’)

http = Net::HTTP.new(uri.host, uri.port)
http.use_ssl = true

http.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE # Not setting this

explicitly will result in an error and the value being set anyway
response = http.get(’/’)
p response

I tried the code that you suggest and I get the following error
messages. The error seems to be thrown on this line

response = http.get(’/’)

Did you require net/https (NOT net/http)?
