In the POD for feteching enviroment variables in CGI it refferences a https() subroutine which is identical to http() but for SSL. Calling it though returns an error about undefined subroutine main::https(). Was this functionality removed in CGI? This happens with CGI.pm-3.55 and CGI.pm-3.52 Perl 5.10.1 and Perl 5.14.1.

How did you call it? CGI::https()? CGI->https()? $q->https()? https()? I'm guessing you used the last style, but didn't do "use CGI ':all'". I recommend the OO style (third option).

I called it via https() and I loaded the CGI module with :standard, because http is loaded as standard I figured https would be as well.

Looks like even :all doesn't load https(), you would have to use :ssl. A doc-patch about this would be welcome. vim +/https `perldoc -l CGI` Mark
