Subject: Libwww talking to a secure server using https ---- How??????

i have to pass my requests to a secure server using the url of the format: 
https://server/page?attr=value <https://server/page?attr=value>  
I was using Libwww till now but my urls were of the format; 
http://server/page?attr=value <http://server/page?attr=value>  

How should i make my existing code work with https: too.... I have come to
know that Libwww does not support this . Is it correct??If so , is there any
way by which i  can  make this change to my existing code. i thought of
making use of glue code(provided by libwww-ssl-1.0.1 but the existing
example didn't work). could anyone give me some code of how to proceed.

Pls. note that its urgent & we are at a releasing stage....
