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

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 method take additional parameters as
       accepted by IO::Socket::SSL.  The "Net::HTTPS" object isa "IO::Socket::SSL" too, which
       make 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".
