Support for https protocol in LWP
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).
