SPUG: Using Perl to post data via SSL with client certificate

Net::SSLeay is tripping me up on something simple, and I would
really appreciate a tip from someone that knows how to use perl to post data
via an SSL
connection using a client certificate for authentication.
Basically, using sample code from the documentation, I get an error that I
am calling the post_https function with too many arguments.
Here are the pretty details.
Using the example code from the documentation section, Using Client
Certificates, I get this apache error:
Too many arguments for Net::SSLeay::post_https at myscript.cgi line 446,
Execution of relay_response.cgi aborted due to compilation errors.
[Wed May 26 16:41:57 2004] [error] [client 188.8.131.52] Premature end of
script headers: myscript.cgi
This is the sample code:
($page, $response, %reply_headers)
= post_https('www.bacus.pt', 443, '/foo.cgi', # 3b
'Basic ' .
make_form(OK => '1', name => 'Sampo'),
$mime_type6, $path_to_crt7, $path_to_key8);
This is what mine looks like:
my $mime_type6 = 'text/xml';
my $path_to_crt7 = '/my/path/mycert.der';
my $path_to_key8 = '/my/path/mykey1024.pem';
use Net::SSLeay qw(post_https);
my ($page, $response, %reply_headers) = post_https('partners.somewhere.com',
443, '/s/MyXml?pid=12345&pacct=My_Acct', '', $xml_text, $mime_type6,
Documentation bug? Or something else?
