    Anybody got any clues as to why

    curl -k -s -v -o htmlu.txt "https://my.url"

    when issues in a shell script using sh /tmp/my.stdin would give

    Protocol ""https" not supported or disabled in libcurl

    when the exact same command cut/pasted onto the OMVS shell

    works fine ?

    Always the way.....light appears after I post.

    I have to work out how to get the quotes around the URL interpreted properly by the shell I think. Backslash doesn't work.

    Hi Hank,

    This errors usually occurs when URL cannot be read properly.

    It looks, the protocol name was read as ""https"  instead of "https". Could you check if you have extra double quotes in your script?

    You can also try to skip the quotes around URL:

    curl -k -s -v -o htmlu.txt https://example.com

    It should work in mostly cases.

    Thanks,

    Sergey

    Ah well I decided I am likely the worst shell scripter I know !

    I am having much more success running my prototyping via Rexx - which I've been using for much longer and I can work with syscalls and spawn more easily.
    Thx for taking an interest.
