You need libcurl compiled with OpenSSL (--with-ssl). Other than that, I
don't think you need anything special. You should be able to specify a
HTTPS URL and retrieve the contents (pretty much like a normal HTTP
request.) Just make sure, that the web/app server does not require a
client certificate.

I am not a specialist of HTTP (hence the use of curl, which does the job for me !); what are the differences in the options ? Is there any additional library needed (openSSL, etc) ? Shortly, how can I do.
