urgent please :HTTPS html parsing

Hi,
Is there any way to extract the html code of a https:// website in
hpricot. When i use hpricot to access a https:// website i receive the
following error.

/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in
`gem_original_require': no such file to load -- net/https (LoadError)
  from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in
`require'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:230:in `open_http'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:616:in `buffer_open'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:164:in `open_loop'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:162:in `catch'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:162:in `open_loop'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:132:in `open_uri'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:518:in `open'
  from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:30:in `open'
  from demo.rb:15:in `valid'
  from demo.rb:93

I'm also not able to load the html data gmail, youtube etc. Is it
because i'm using hpricot. Is there any other way to extract https
websites. Please help me.

Did you require 'net/https'? It seems that that lib is just not loaded/
present.

A quick Google search for 'rails https' yielded this on the 5th entry
found. It seems like exactly what you need to do.

It also looks completely out of date - that patch doesn't look like it
would apply to current versions of ruby 1.8.6
if net/https can't be required then I would assumed this is on a linux
distribution where ruby is split into multiple packages, one of which
is usually this one with ssl stuff in it ( libopenssl-ruby in ubuntu)
