IO::All::HTTPS - Extends IO::All for HTTPS URLs
$content < io('https://example.org'); # GET webpage
# two ways of getting a page with a password:
$content < io('https://me:firstname.lastname@example.org');
$content < io('https://example.org')->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('https://example.com'), which calls the https method automatically.
The same operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs an HTTPS URL; > PUTs to an HTTPS URL.
IO::All, IO::All::LWP, LWP.
