release early, release often
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)
Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.
Connect to destination using SSL (look into latest version, download latest version 0.2.0-20071009-225532, sig)
There is an openssl command which does ssl connects to destinations. However it is not easily used from command lines, lacks proper error reporting and sometimes has a termination problem.
This here is a simple SSL connect with proper error reporting. Real options are missing for now.
Timeout option should work now when idle, too.
There was a stupid bug in the code which hindered timeouts to happen when no data transfer was seen. Note that the connect timeout and SSH handshake timeout are both "timeout" seconds while the timeout due to missing activity on the socket is nearly twice this duration. (Actually it's between timeout*2-L where L varies from 1 to 2+log(timeout)/log(2), depending of the bit value of timeout.)
Note that the word stupid means me, not the bug ;)

Timeout option added.
Just give "-seconds" as first argument. The timeout is used for connect and handshake. Also there is an inactivity timeout, so the program exits if there is too long silence in both directions.
