socket timeout / m2crypto.urllib problems

I have a test script below which I use to fetch urls into strings,
either over https or http. When over https, I use m2crypto.urllib and
when over http I use the standard urllib. Whenever, I import sockets
and setdefaulttimeo ut, however, using m2crypto.urllib tends to cause a
http.BadStatusL ine to be raised, even if the timeout is set to be very
large. All of the documents in the test script can be accessed

Any ideas? Is there a better/easier way to get https docs in python?


import urllib, socket
from cStringIO import StringIO
from M2Crypto import Rand, SSL, m2urllib

#comment out this line and the script generally works, but without it
#my zope process, which is using this code, hangs.
socket.setdefau lttimeout(200)
def url_to_string(s ource):
get url as string, for https and http
if source.startswi th('https:'):
sh = StringIO()
url = m2urllib.FancyU RLopener()
url.addheader(' Connection', 'close')
u = url.open(source )

while 1:
data = u.read()
if not data: break
return sh.getvalue()
return urllib.urlopen( source).read()

if __name__=='__ma in__':
s1 = url_to_string(' https://crcdocs.bsd.uch icago.edu/crcdocs/Files/informatics.doc ')

s2 = url_to_string(' http://yahoo.com')

s3 = url_to_string(' https://crcdocs.bsd.uch icago.edu/crcdocs/Files/facepage.doc')
print len(s1), len(s2), len(s3)

Python 2.3 has https support built-in even on Windows.

I think I've found a deficiency in the design of urllib related to https. In order to complete an https connection, it appears that URLOpener and hence FancyURLOpener require the key and cert files. Or at least, it's not clear from the description of socket.ssl what it does if they're omitted. However, urlopen has no way to specify such things. Nor should it - for typical uses, a person simply trying to retrieve data from an ssl site...
