( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am having difficulty using perl to visit a website via TOR if it is an https site but not if it is an http site.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; use LWP::Protocol::socks; use LWP::Protocol::https; use utf8; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->proxy(['http', 'https'], 'socks://localhost:9150'); $mech->get("https://www.google.com");

I am receiving the error message: Error GETing https://www.google.com: Status read failed: Bad file descriptor at line 10," where line i10 is the last line of the program.

In the TOR browser, I can successfully view: "https://www.google.com" with a port of 9150. I am using ActivePerl 5.16.2; Vadalia 0.2.21 and Tor 0.2.3.25. I have a Windows machine and my primary internet browser is Mozilla.

I have tried installing packages with the commands:

cpan LWP::UserAgent ppm install LWP::Protocol::https cpan LWP::Protocol::https ppm install LWP::Protocol::socks cpan LWP::Protocol::socks ppm install Mozilla::CA ppm install IO::Socket::SSL ppm install Crypt::SSLeay cpan Crypt::SSLeay
