LWP and HTTPS

RichardH has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does the LWP::Simple library care if you pass it an https url? One of our third-party contractors has a function that we can call over https connection. Up till now we have been using http, and LWP::Simple has been more than adequate, but because of the nature of this new function (it is essentially a delete record function) their people want it to be over a secure connection.

    LWP::UserAgent (which I believe LWP::Simple is built on top of) can handle the HTTPS protocol if you have Net::SSL or IO::Socket::SSL. You'll probably need to install Crypt::SSLeay or IO::Socket::SSL.
