Hi All,

Due to a physical move of servers, I have to shutdown my website on
Opensource ports to OpenVMS.
http://nchrem.tnw.tudelft.nl/openvms/software2.html will be down from to
day 12.00 GMT till August 25.

During this time you can use my "backup" web-site at
http://garoon.nano.tudelft.nl/openvms/software2.html (this site is not
always up-to-date and has less bandwidth than the the one that is
temporarily not available.

Bookreader is not a very friendly format anyway. I guess/hope that
there are PDF versions of the manuals available also.

I use WASD (The) by Marg G. Daniel , so .DECW$BOOK is very friendly format for me.
So, do u think that PDF version of docs will kick out the WGET error or the web-site useless switching from HTTP to HTTPS ?

Try curl. That seems to have HTTPS available, based on what's posted there.

[...] HTTPS support not compiled in.
So, compile it in. The current shape of [Open]SSL on VMS
(SSL, SSL1, other, ...) confused me enough that I've been
afraid to build any support for it into the Wget kits which I
publish. If Wget is built with SSL support, then it should
work in such a case. For example, using Wget 1.18, built
with a command like:
mms /mac = (HPSSL1=1)
I get:

Fine. I can take a hint.
