    SSL -- which modules are good?


    I need to write some applications that log onto webservers via https (w/ ssl/tls) & retrieve some data.

    I've done non-ssl socket stuff in both perl & python, and I'm trying to decide between the 2 for this program. I'd like to use python, but it seems as if perl's ssl socket modules are more developed & tested.

    My app wil have a boss application that will open many worker threads to grab some data from a couple different remote web servers & then put it into a mysql database.

    Has anyone done ssl & threading stuff like this together in python? Are the ssl libraries reliable enough to not make things go crazy when threading is introduced?

    ssl objects can be created with the socket module, which is definately a well tested module, so I wouldn't expect there to be much trouble. I've never used the socket module for ssl objects though, so all I can say is give it a whirl and see what happens
