ppm and proxy

by Anonymous Monk
on Mar 14, 2012 at 17:15 UTC ( #959628=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,
I have read there A guide to installing modules for Win32 about bypassing the proxy for using ppm by setting set http_proxy, set http_proxy_user and set http_proxy_pass.
Perhaps a stupid question, but: is it safe to type http_proxy_pass (that is also a password for a local machine in the network) - in other words can it be read by trespasser by doing this?
Thanks!

[Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
[karlgoethebier]: Cojones! We need cojones!
[karlgoethebier]: Ouch! Permissions! We need permissions!
