I am joining the list, as a VMS user, so im now part of "user base"! Hopefully this is the correct mailing-list, as I am starting a project to use CURL on VMS. So currently am prototyping solutions. I am using the binary kit as found on the download page of 7.19.5 with the matching source for compiling.
My project will be performing https, currently we have HPSSL installed. A sample c-program calling curl is working, complied with the curl-source for 7.19.5 and linking with binarys for 7.19.5
First question> Im I supposed to be using a more recent version?
I have tried VMS_BUILD_COM but it is not working, is this because of needed updates as said in the "thread" ?
Second questions> Is the suggestion to HPSSL or OPENSSL?
