Open-uri and HTTPS, or net/https with a redirect

Is there anything wrong with using this patch?

http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-core/4365

How do you implement it?

If not a good solution, can net/http be used with HTTPS sites and can
redirection be built in?

Do you need it? That only provides the ability to check the validity
of a server certificate. You don’t need that just to connect via ssl.

Not sure what you mean by redirection. Here is an example of an ssl
POST.

require ‘net/https’

https = Net::HTTP.new(host,port)
https.use_ssl = true
headers = { ‘Referer’ => ‘’, ‘Content-Type’ =>
‘application/x-www-form-urlencoded’ }
response = https.post(path, request, headers)
p response.body

i am trying to connect to https://login.yahoo.com which redirects to
what is im assuming a load balanced server.

correct, after you login. the login credentials can be embedded into
the URL so that is what im doing.

login.yahoo.com/login?login=usernamehere%40yahoo.com&passwd=passwordgoeshere

You mean after you login? It doesn’t redirect me anywhere when I go
there.
