SSL support in HTTP::Daemon

SSL support in HTTP::Daemon
Message ID:

In reading the README.SSL, I get the impression that ssl support on the 
server side should be a drop in or "plug-and-play" as it is with the client:

"The libwww-perl package has support for using SSL/TLSv1 with its HTTP
client and server classes.....
Encryption support is obtained through the use of Crypt::SSLeay or
IO::Socket::SSL, which can both be found from CPAN. While libwww-perl
has "plug-and-play" support for both of these modules (as of v5.45),
the recommended module to use is Crypt::SSLeay."

However I have attempted this without success using the HTTP::Daemon module.

Can anyone shed ligt on this, or better yet, provide a code example of 
how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance
