IO::All::HTTPS(3) Extends IO::All for HTTPS URLs


use IO::All;
$content < io(''); # GET webpage
# two ways of getting a page with a password:
$content < io('https://me:[email protected]');
$content < io('')->user('me')->password('secret');


This module extends IO::All for dealing with HTTPS URLs. Note that you don't need to use it explicitly, as it is autoloaded by IO::All whenever it sees something that looks like an HTTPS URL.

The SYNOPSIS shows some simple typical examples, but there are many other interesting combinations with other IO::All features! For example, you can get an HTTPS URL and write the content to a socket, or to an FTP URL, of to a DBM file.


This is a subclass of IO::All::LWP. The only new method is "https", which can be used to create a blank IO::All::HTTPS object; or it can also take an HTTPS URL as a parameter. Note that in most cases it is simpler just to call io(''), which calls the "https" method automatically.


The same operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs an HTTPS URL; > PUTs to an HTTPS URL.
