.Q.hg (Added in kdb+ v3.4)
.Q.hg is a convenience function for performing an http[s] GET query. It expects a single argument, the url of interest. e.g.
If you have configured ssl/tls, https can also be used, e.g.
It will utilize proxy settings from the environment, lowercase versions taking precedence:
HTTP_PROXY, http_proxy: the url of the HTTP proxy to use NO_PROXY, no_proxy: comma-separated list of domains for which to disable use of proxy
n.b. https is not supported across proxies which require 'CONNECT'.
