By "navigate", do you mean looking at an HTML page and finding links in it?

Yup + manage https well (not a login, just an https page).

By "manage", do you mean to download a page? Has curl been giving you trouble downloading https files?

For downloading http or https files or pages, both curl and wget work well, and I'm surprised to hear that curl would be giving you trouble. What exactly is the problem that you're seeing?

For looking at a downloaded HTML page and looking for links that match a particular pattern, I often find that regex's work well.

I've tried a dozen options in curl... but it couldn't get it working... curl: (35) error:140773F2:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert unexpected message

however wget worked for me!!! and I should be able to write code to follow the links from there. thanks.
