I'm way behind the times understanding what might be available for managing
ssl certifcates. Is there a nice gui tool available now? The last time I had
to create a CSR I followed an lengthy set of command line instructions,
making directories, using openssl command line syntax, etc.

When doing such things, there's a really cool tool that's been
around for decades called "script"

Before you start your lengthy series of commands, type "script"
do all your work.

When you're done, there will be a file called "typescript"

You can also do "script filename".. in which case the output
will go to the file filename instead of typescript.

Also, there's a script called "cleanscript"
which reads stdin and produces standard out.

cleanscript < typescript > savescript

in the event that you don't have typescript available,
then try

col -bx < typescript > savescript.

cleanscript / col -bx are useful for getting rid
of mista^H^H^H^H^Hcharacters you don't want to keep.

I'm hoping there is something better.
