Hi all. I'm trying to use the google maps web API from squeak, but I'm 
stuck at square one (as usual).

I can't seem to get https working properly to access a google map server.

The closest I have gotten is using the HttpsSocket class and utilities 
found in Cobalt (squeak 3.8) but that doesn't quite work either.

Transcript show: a retrieveContents contents.

It works in a browser, but not with any version of squeak I have tried

The URL I'm trying to access is:


Suggestions on how to get it through squeak? I'll take any version, any 
flavor at this point.

Caveat: I just installed Mac OS X Lion, which may be complicating things
