Net::HTTPS(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	 Net::HTTPS(3)

NAME
       Net::HTTPS - Low-level HTTP over	SSL/TLS	connection (client)

VERSION
       version 6.16

DESCRIPTION
       The "Net::HTTPS"	is a low-level HTTP over SSL/TLS client.  The
       interface is the	same as	the interface for "Net::HTTP", but the
       constructor takes additional parameters as 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
       the Crypt-SSLeay	distribution) as its SSL driver	and base class.	 This
       base is automatically selected if available and "IO::Socket::SSL"
       isn't.  You might also force which implementation to use	by setting
       $Net::HTTPS::SSL_SOCKET_CLASS before loading this module.  If not set
       this variable is	initialized from the "PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS"
       environment variable.

ENVIRONMENT
       You might set the "PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS" environment
       variable	to the name of the base	SSL implementation (and	Net::HTTPS
       base class) to use.  The	default	is "IO::Socket::SSL".  Currently the
       only other supported value is "Net::SSL".
