This thread is about libcurl calling the write callback, and nothing at all
about its TLS functionality. What exactly are you replying to or about?

I helped you now by changing the subject to something more appropriate to
what you seem to be talking about.

All HTTPS clients check certificates (or should at least), that's hardly
original on libcurl's part.

If you have *constructive* ideas and suggestions on how to improve things I'm
all ears.

I tried 'curl' just now, worked flawlessly. In what way
is libcurl's design to blame for any problem with any TLS certificates?
