use HTTP::Proxy;

# create a new HTTP::Recorder object
my $agent = HTTP::Recorder->new( file => "/tmp/webproxy.log",
                                 showwindow => 1 );

# set HTTP::Recorder as the agent for the proxy
$proxy->agent( $agent );

# start the proxy


Is there anything special that I need to do to enable the use of https
with http-recorder?
