Hi, 

I had to had to do exactly this, didn't need ssl though,
here's a quick script that gets a webpage via proxy, and prints it out
to screen (not too useful, but its only an example :-)
--code--

import httplib
PROXY = 'yourproxyname:yourproxyport' 
URL='http://www.some.server/somefile.html'

h = httplib.HTTP(PROXY)
h.putrequest('GET',URL)
h.putheader('Accept','text/html')
h.endheaders()

errcode,errmsg,headers = h.getreply()
print errcode

file = h.getfile()
data = file.read()
file.close()
print data

--code--

OK, so it ain't pretty, and it doesn't check that the errorcode is 200
before getting file.
but that was how I realised it was SQUID running as proxy.

hope that helps

Steven
