You can use LWP Perl module to do all http and https transfers. See example below. Check LWP documentation for details at:


use LWP;
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;

my $response = $browser->get("https://www.yoururl.com/");

die "$url error: ", $response->status_line
   unless $response->is_success;

print $response->content;

Open in new window

SSL connection requires Perl module IO::Socket::SSL. Install that module from CPAN.
