The following isn't necessarily the "proper way", but it's something that came to mind. I find it useful when debugging Perl CGI stuff for https:// servers to use `stunnel`. It's like telnet but uses SSL protocol. Example:
$ stunnel -cr GET /cgi-bin/ HTTP/1.0 HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Date: Wed, 21 Nov 2001 21:32:06 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.22 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.8.5 OpenSSL/0.9.6b location: /store/index.html Connection: close Content-Type: text/plain

There I used it like a telnet client. You can also pipe stuff to it (actually, you can pipe stuff to telnet, too). I'm not sure offhand how to get LWP::Simple to use stunnel, though.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
