in reply to LWP::UserAgent and private proxy servers

It may be as simple as doing this:

$ua->proxy(["http"], "http://username:password@proxy.com");

Or you may find that this code (which does 401 authentication for you) does what you want.

my $ua = LWP::Custom->new(); $ua->proxy(["http"], "http://proxy.com"); $ua->set_basic_credentials( $user, $pass ); package LWP::Custom; use base 'LWP::UserAgent'; # add a set_basic_credentials method, using a closure to remember { my ( $username, $password ); sub set_basic_credentials{ ( $username, $password ) = @_[1..2] } sub get_basic_credentials{ $username, $password }; }

cheers

    is that documented?
      It sure is. Read the proxy attributes section of the documentation.

    Tachyon,

    Thank you so much for your help. The first idea didn't work because LWP::UserAgent couldn't handle the username and password within the url, but the second idea worked wonderfully and you showed me how to extend classes.
    Thanks again,

    Matt Schick
