I would like to sniff the login dialog for a https site. There is nothing sinister about what I want to do - I just want to be able to do the login process and a database query "robotically" rather than by browser/fingers.  In fact I want to do it using CURL and some PHP.  I have done this sort of thing before with a non-https site using Wireshark, but that of course is no good to me for handling an encrypted conversation.

It's actually about logging in to a site that does aviation forecasts (they come in a special dialect of pig-latin), gathering the data, translating it to English and presenting that back to the user.

Is there any way I can get at "my end" of this communication?
