NAME ^

Net::HTTPS::Any - Simple HTTPS class using whichever underlying SSL module is available

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Net::HTTPS::Any qw(https_get https_post);
  
  ( $page, $response, %reply_headers )
      = https_get(
                   { 'host' => 'www.fortify.net',
                     'port' => 443,
                     'path' => '/sslcheck.html',
                   },
                 );

  ( $page, $response, %reply_headers )
      = https_post(
                    'host' => 'www.google.com',
                    'port' => 443,
                    'path' => '/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth',
                    'args' => { 'field' => 'value' },
                    #'args' => [ 'field'=>'value' ], #order preserved
                  );
  
  #...

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a simple wrapper around either of the two available SSL modules. It offers a unified API for sending GET and POST requests over HTTPS and receiving responses.

It depends on Net::SSLeay _or_ ( Crypt::SSLeay and LWP::UserAgent ).

WHY THIS MODULE ^

If you just want to write something that speaks HTTPS, you don't need this module. Just go ahead and use whichever of the two modules is good for you. Don't worry about it.

On the other hand, if you are a CPAN author or distribute a Perl application, especially if you aim to support multiple OSes/disributions, using this module for speaking HTTPS may make things easier on your users. It allows your code to be used with either SSL implementation.

FUNCTIONS ^

https_get HASHREF | FIELD => VALUE, ...

Accepts parameters as either a hashref or a list of fields and values.

Parameters are:

host
port
path
headers (hashref)

For example: { 'X-Header1' => 'value', ... }

args

CGI arguments, eitehr as a hashref or a listref. In the latter case, ordering is preserved (see Tie::IxHash to do so when passing a hashref).

debug

Set true to enable debugging.

Returns a list consisting of the page content as a string, the HTTP response code and message (i.e. "200 OK" or "404 Not Found"), and a list of key/value pairs representing the HTTP response headers.

https_post HASHREF | FIELD => VALUE, ...

Accepts parameters as either a hashref or a list of fields and values.

Parameters are:

host
port
path
headers (hashref)

For example: { 'X-Header1' => 'value', ... }

Content-Type

Defaults to "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" if not specified.

args

CGI arguments, eitehr as a hashref or a listref. In the latter case, ordering is preserved (see Tie::IxHash to do so when passing a hashref).

content

Raw content (overrides args). A simple scalar containing the raw content.

debug

Set true to enable debugging in the underlying SSL module.

Returns a list consisting of the page content as a string, the HTTP response code and message (i.e. "200 OK" or "404 Not Found"), and a list of key/value pairs representing the HTTP response headers.
