Crypt::MatrixSSL - Perl extension for SSL and TLS using MatrixSSL.org


  use Crypt::MatrixSSL;

  (See the MatrixSSL documentation, or the mxgg.pl sample script 
   included in this package)

  Some documentation is also included in POD format in the .xs file. 


Crypt::MatrixSSL lets you use the MatrixSSL crypto library (see http://matrixssl.org/) from Perl. With this module, you will be able to easily write SSL and TLS client and server programs.

MatrixSSL includes everything you need, all in under 50KB.

You will need a "C" compiler to build this, unless you're getting the ".ppm" prebuilt Win32 version. Crypt::MatrixSSL builds cleanly on (at least) Windows, Linux, and Macintosh machines.

MatrixSSL is an Open Source (GNU Public License) product, and is also available commercially if you need freedom from GNU rules.

Everything you need is included here, but check the MatrixSSL.org web site to make sure you've got the latest version of the MatrixSSL "C" code if you like (it's in the directory "./matrixssl" of this package if you want to replace the included version from the MatrixSSL.org download site.)


None by default.


http://www.MatrixSSL.org - the download from this site includes simple yet comprehensive documentation in PDF format.
