       HTTP::Daemon::SSL - a simple http server class with SSL support


         use HTTP::Daemon::SSL;
         use HTTP::Status;

         # Make sure you have a certs/ directory with "server-cert.pem"
         # and "server-key.pem" in it before running this!
         my $d = HTTP::Daemon::SSL->new || die;
         print "Please contact me at: <URL:", $d->url, ">\n";
         while (my $c = $d->accept) {
             while (my $r = $c->get_request) {
                 if ($r->method eq 'GET' and $r->url->path eq "/xyzzy") {
                     # remember, this is *not* recommened practice :-)
                 } else {


       Instances of the HTTP::Daemon::SSL class are HTTP/1.1 servers that listen on a socket for
       incoming requests. The HTTP::Daemon::SSL is a sub-class of IO::Socket::SSL, so you can
       perform socket operations directly on it too.

       The accept() method will return when a connection from a client is available.  In a scalar
       context the returned value will be a reference to a object of the
       HTTP::Daemon::ClientConn::SSL class which is another IO::Socket::SSL subclass.  In a list
       context a two-element array is returned containing the new HTTP::Daemon::ClientConn::SSL
       reference and the peer address; the list will be empty upon failure. (Note that version
        1.02 erroneously did not honour list context). Calling the get_request() method on the
       HTTP::Daemon::ClientConn::SSL object will read data from the client and return an
       HTTP::Request object reference.

       This HTTPS daemon does not fork(2) for you.  Your application, i.e. the user of the
       HTTP::Daemon::SSL is reponsible for forking if that is desirable.  Also note that the user
       is responsible for generating responses that conform to the HTTP/1.1 protocol.  The
       HTTP::Daemon::ClientConn class provides some methods that make this easier.


       The following methods are the only differences from the HTTP::Daemon base class:

       $d = new HTTP::Daemon::SSL
           The constructor takes the same parameters as the IO::Socket::SSL constructor.  It can
           also be called without specifying any parameters, but you will have to make sure that
           you have an SSL certificate and key for the server in certs/server-cert.pem and
           certs/server-key.pem.  See the IO::Socket::SSL documentation for how to change these
           default locations and specify many other aspects of SSL behavior. The daemon will then
           set up a listen queue of 5 connections and allocate some random port number.  A server
           that wants to bind to some specific address on the standard HTTPS port will be
           constructed like this:

             $d = new HTTP::Daemon::SSL
                   LocalAddr => '',
                   LocalPort => 443;


       There is a problem with the interaction between the HTTP::Daemon base class and
       IO::Socket::SSL buffering which causes large post or put actions (>66k or so, depending on
       your OS) to hang.
