New submission from Steve Smith <tarkasteve at gmail.com>:

urllib returns various errors when accessing SSL sites.  Example code below.

With Google it throws "sslerror: EOF occurred in violation of protocol: 8"; with
most other (e.g. https://www.atlassian.com/) it throws "sslerror: TLS/SSL
connection has been closed: 6".


import urllib
import sys

if len(sys.argv) > 1:
    url = sys.argv[1]

fd = urllib.urlopen(url)

count = 0
for line in fd:
    count += 1
    print "\rLine", count,
