Perl5 interface to allow p5-libwww LWP to make https connections
This perl module provides support for the https protocol under LWP, so that a LWPUserAgent can make https GET & HEAD & POST requests. Please see perldoc LWP for more information on POST requests. The CryptSSLeay package contains NetSSL, which is automatically loaded by LWPProtocolhttps on https requests, and provides the necessary SSL glue for that module to work via these deprecated modules CryptSSLeayCTX CryptSSLeayConn CryptSSLeayX509 Work on CryptSSLeay has been continued only to provide https support for the LWP - libwww perl libraries. If you want access to the OpenSSL API via perl, check out Sampo's NetSSLeay.
