in reply to PerlMonksChat module via proxy

PerlMonks module does not handle proxies, so you need to edit the file, and add a $self->{ua}->env_proxy() call in the new() method, like this :
sub new { my $class=shift; my $self={}; $self->{ua}=new LWP::UserAgent; $self->{ua}->env_proxy(); bless $self, $class; return $self; }
Then, define your proxy by setting the environment variable http_proxy before launching the client :
http_proxy= export http_proxy

    Thank you a lot, I have no experience with libwww modules, so, while usually I tend to go inside module and look by myself, in this particular case I'll follow your advice.

    How do you think, isn't it a good idea to /msg your code to author, so that proxies support will be built in?

    PS. Something fishy is going on there, or my name is Vadim Konovalov. And it's not.
