I just want to be able to access a Web HTTPS page, and obtain an answer.

I'm not really familiar with this library.

Thanks in advance !

Maybe take a look at the stunnel or curl sources as well? curl uses ssl to retrieve web-pages, so you might be able to use a subset of curl...

I have looked for curl. I think it is a good way to do what I want to do : HTTPS POST and HTTPS GET.

If anybody have example code to do that, it would help me.

I haven't directly programmed against curl but this sample page includes code for basic HTTP (which covers HTTP GET I suppose), HTTP POST and use of openssl.

http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/example.html

Note that this was returned by a Google search. I highly recommend using a library like curl, http seems simple but there are many snags such as cookies, sessions, encodings etc. etc.
