Net::HTTPS - Low-level HTTP over SSL/TLS connection (client)
is a low-level HTTP
client. The interface is the sameas the interface for "Net::HTTP"
, but the constructor takes additional parametersas accepted by IO::Socket::SSL. The "Net::HTTPS"
object is an "IO::Socket::SSL"
too, which makes it inherit additional methods from that base class.
For historical reasons this module also supports using "Net::SSL" (from theCrypt-SSLeay distribution) as its SSL driver and base class. This base isautomatically selected if available and "IO::Socket::SSL" isn't. You mightalso force which implementation to use by setting $Net::HTTPS::SSL_SOCKET_CLASSbefore loading this module. If not set this variable is initialized from the"PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS" environment variable.
You might set the "PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS"
environment variable to the nameof the base SSL
implementation (and Net::HTTPS base class) to use. The defaultis "IO::Socket::SSL"
. Currently the only other supported value is "Net::SSL"
