This perl module provides support for the HTTPS protocol under LWP, so
that an LWP::UserAgent can make HTTPS GET & HEAD & POST requests. Please
see perldoc LWP for more information on POST requests.
The Crypt::SSLeay package contains Net::SSL, which is automatically
loaded by LWP::Protocol::https on HTTPS requests, and provides the
necessary SSL glue for that module to work via these deprecated modules:
Crypt::SSLeay::CTX, Crypt::SSLeay::Conn and Crypt::SSLeay::X509.
Work on Crypt::SSLeay 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 Net::SSLeay (available in Debian as
the libnet-ssleay-perl package).
