Re: Unable to Install HTTP::Proxy
in thread Unable to Install HTTP::Proxy
sure it does, read the rest of that paragraph, try it for yourself, [mod://HTTP::Proxy] HTTP::Proxy and HTTP::Proxy::Engine::NoFork
read the rest of that paragraph,
Hm. That paragraph open with "Doesn't work on Windows"; and finishes with "let me know if it works any better".
That inspires no confidence.
try it for yourself
Have you tried it under Windows? If the answer is yes, then I'd suggest you contact the author and have him update that paragraph.
Get some sleep or try it yourself?
The documentation says
However, David Fishburn says:
This did not work for me under WinXP - ActiveState Perl 5.6, but it DOES work on WinXP ActiveState Perl 5.8.
I haven't tried HTTP::Proxy::Engine::Threaded which uses threads and not fork
But yes, I've check that it works, my notes
it works, but make sure when you switch firefox
in options+advanced+network+manual proxy,
to remove localhost from the "no proxy for" list
- Connection Settings
- Manual proxy configuration:
No proxy for: localhost, 127.0.0.1
$ cat http_traffic
$agent->field('query', 'shoes my clown');
I did try it years ago under 5.8.something. It was totally unreliable under any load.
I had a go at fixing it and eventually decided it was beyond fixing and sought an alternative solution.
"...try it yourself"
OK, why not. This is always the best. But it only works like this:
cpan>notest force install HTTP::Proxy::Engine::NoFork
Appending installation info to C:\Perl\lib/perllocal.pod
C:\Perl\site\bin\dmake.exe install -- OK
Without notest force it freezes.
Perl is v5.14.2 (ActivePerl) on XP SP3.
It seem to work...
