in thread HTTP::Proxy SSL Man in the middle

I don't know about SSL, but HTTP::Proxy lends itself very nicely for monitoring/modifying things by being man-in-the-middle. I use it to allow special commands to be run by the proxy when a user requests specific URLs. I created a filter that monitors URLs, and breaks them apart. I can use this filter to modify what someone is asking for, change what is fed back to a user, and if I need the system to take an action and create a complete HTML page on the fly. Again, I do all of this with HTTP, not SSL. I don't know if HTTP::Proxy supports SSL, never tried it. Anyone try to get SSL to work with HTTP::Proxy? Good question.
