Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does anyone know if LWP::Simple is compatible to use in IIS (I am trying to use my $doc = get ("https://mydir/my_page.cgi");
and it's not working it seems that the code above doesn't have any effect at all. How can I ckeck if it is installed in the perl version I have? Any other way than the get method? Thank you!!!!

    You can't use HTTPS unless you install an SSL library. Read the docs for details.

    The information about the problem is insufficient. Sorry, i can't see you put any effort in trying to find any hints on your own. What happens on the commandline? What's in the error-log?
