always upgrade LWP dependencies ... reinstall then, reinstall IO::Socket::SSL

    Thanks for your time.

    Would that be something as simple as:

    > cpan install LWP::Bundle
    followed by:
    > cpan install IO::Socket::SSL
    Is that enough to get Perl using the installed copy of OpenSSL 0.9.8y ?

    UPDATE: IO::Socket::SSL version 1.90 "RT#85290, support more digest, especially SHA-2." is the fix I'm looking for.

    UPDATE: that's actually cpan install Bundle::LWP

      In case anyone ever finds this looking for answers, did three things to get it working:
      1. I installed IO::Socket::SSL to a version greater than 1.90 (in fact version 2.012). (I just copied the source of that module to a file in a directory on the server.)
      2. I had to do the same with IO::Socket::SSL::PublicSuffix.
      3. I used a use lib qw( /path/to/module ) statement to get my program to load the right modules.

      I did not find it necessary to upgrade LWP. And I did have a version of OpenSSL installed that was greater than 0.9.8o. Cheers,
