LWP oddityby adamsj (Hermit)
|on Nov 12, 2002 at 23:13 UTC||Need Help??|
adamsj has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So we're using LWP to pull data off a server by pretending we're a browser and going through a proxy--or we were, until firewall issues cut us off. They've added us to the allow list and should be getting through, but we're not.
"Okay," I says to myself, "if we can't go through the proxy 'cause it thinks we're it instead of us, I can just take the proxy setting out, and the request will just whiz right through."
Instead, now the script dies while I'm stepping through it in the debugger. This bothers me.
Now, with the proxy setting taken out, it fails in the debugger on the next line.
I'm puzzled--any help?
