RE: OpenVMS cURL won't connect SSL

Thank you all - the solution on our VMS setup was simple once you all
provided me the clue that curl was ignoring all the SSL default
directories - especially the fact that I had to specify the path and
the file explicitly. Also, I could not use the SSL$ logicals. Plus I
had to strip the LFs from the ca bundle, but that's standard VMS stuff.
(very easy c++ source available if anyone needs one) Just the
combination of those plus first time using curl was confusing.

curl --capath SYS$SYSDEVICE:[CPD] --cacert KEYS.PEM https://etc...

It's the simple stuff that drives me nuts, thanks again!
