Have you? :-/ The documentation that you refer-to here is frankly almost nonexistent: the SSL_alert_ functions listed here show you how to extract bits of information from the alert record, but give no clue as to how one goes about getting one.
It’s pretty obvious that this library is a “wrapper” for functionality described, more-or-just-barely, at http://www.openssl.org/, which also does not readily dish-up the answer. So, if anyone here actually knows the answer, and can offer a snippet of working Perl code, I am sure that it would be well received in the spirit of what PerlMonks should be.
