       BIO_s_connect() returns the connect BIO method. This is a wrapper round
       the platform's TCP/IP socket connection routines.

       Using connect BIOs, TCP/IP connections can be made and data transferred
       using only BIO routines. In this way any platform specific operations
       are hidden by the BIO abstraction.

       Read and write operations on a connect BIO will perform I/O on the
       underlying connection. If no connection is established and the port and
       hostname (see below) is set up properly then a connection is
       established first.

       Connect BIOs support BIO_puts() but not BIO_gets().

       If the close flag is set on a connect BIO then any active connection is
       shutdown and the socket closed when the BIO is freed.

       Calling BIO_reset() on a connect BIO will close any active connection
       and reset the BIO into a state where it can connect to the same host

       BIO_get_fd() places the underlying socket in c if it is not NULL, it
       also returns the socket . If c is not NULL it should be of type (int

       BIO_set_conn_hostname() uses the string name to set the hostname.  The
       hostname can be an IP address. The hostname can also include the port
       in the form hostname:port . It is also acceptable to use the form
       "hostname/any/other/path" or "hostname:port/any/other/path".

       BIO_set_conn_port() sets the port to port. port can be the numerical
       form or a string such as "http". A string will be looked up first using
       getservbyname() on the host platform but if that fails a standard table
       of port names will be used. Currently the list is http, telnet, socks,
       https, ssl, ftp, gopher and wais.

       BIO_set_conn_ip() sets the IP address to ip using binary form, that is
       four bytes specifying the IP address in big-endian form.

       BIO_set_conn_int_port() sets the port using port. port should be of
       type (int *).

       BIO_get_conn_hostname() returns the hostname of the connect BIO or NULL
       if the BIO is initialized but no hostname is set.  This return value is
       an internal pointer which should not be modified.

       BIO_get_conn_port() returns the port as a string.

       BIO_get_conn_ip() returns the IP address in binary form.

       BIO_get_conn_int_port() returns the port as an int.

       BIO_set_nbio() sets the non blocking I/O flag to n. If n is zero then
       blocking I/O is set. If n is 1 then non blocking I/O is set. Blocking
       I/O is the default. The call to BIO_set_nbio() should be made before
       the connection is established because non blocking I/O is set during
       the connect process.

       BIO_new_connect() combines BIO_new() and BIO_set_conn_hostname() into a
       single call: that is it creates a new connect BIO with name.

       BIO_do_connect() attempts to connect the supplied BIO. It returns 1 if
       the connection was established successfully. A zero or negative value
       is returned if the connection could not be established, the call
       BIO_should_retry() should be used for non blocking connect BIOs to
       determine if the call should be retried.

       If blocking I/O is set then a non positive return value from any I/O
       call is caused by an error condition, although a zero return will
       normally mean that the connection was closed.

       If the port name is supplied as part of the host name then this will
       override any value set with BIO_set_conn_port(). This may be
       undesirable if the application does not wish to allow connection to
       arbitrary ports. This can be avoided by checking for the presence of
       the ':' character in the passed hostname and either indicating an error
       or truncating the string at that point.

       The values returned by BIO_get_conn_hostname(), BIO_get_conn_port(),
       BIO_get_conn_ip() and BIO_get_conn_int_port() are updated when a
       connection attempt is made. Before any connection attempt the values
       returned are those set by the application itself.

       Applications do not have to call BIO_do_connect() but may wish to do so
       to separate the connection process from other I/O processing.

       If non blocking I/O is set then retries will be requested as

       It addition to BIO_should_read() and BIO_should_write() it is also
       possible for BIO_should_io_special() to be true during the initial
       connection process with the reason BIO_RR_CONNECT. If this is returned
       then this is an indication that a connection attempt would block, the
       application should then take appropriate action to wait until the
       underlying socket has connected and retry the call.

       BIO_set_conn_hostname(), BIO_set_conn_port(), BIO_set_conn_ip(),
       BIO_set_conn_int_port(), BIO_get_conn_hostname(), BIO_get_conn_port(),
       BIO_get_conn_ip(), BIO_get_conn_int_port(), BIO_set_nbio() and
       BIO_do_connect() are macros.

       BIO_s_connect() returns the connect BIO method.

       BIO_get_fd() returns the socket or -1 if the BIO has not been

       BIO_set_conn_hostname(), BIO_set_conn_port(), BIO_set_conn_ip() and
       BIO_set_conn_int_port() always return 1.

       BIO_get_conn_hostname() returns the connected hostname or NULL is none
       was set.

       BIO_get_conn_port() returns a string representing the connected port or
       NULL if not set.

       BIO_get_conn_ip() returns a pointer to the connected IP address in
       binary form or all zeros if not set.

       BIO_get_conn_int_port() returns the connected port or 0 if none was

       BIO_set_nbio() always returns 1.

       BIO_do_connect() returns 1 if the connection was successfully
       established and 0 or -1 if the connection failed.

	BIO_puts(cbio, "GET / HTTP/1.0\n\n");
	for(;;) {
	       len = BIO_read(cbio, tmpbuf, 1024);
	       if(len <= 0) break;
	       BIO_write(out, tmpbuf, len);
