    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.

    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      ...

      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

      Alt+Tools
      - Advanced
      - Network
      - Connection Settings
      - Manual proxy configuration:
      No proxy for: localhost, 127.0.0.1
      
      
      about:config
      network.proxy.http;localhost
      network.proxy.http_port;8080
      network.proxy.type;1
      network.proxy.no_proxies_on;localhost, 127.0.0.1
      
      $ cat http_traffic $agent->get('http://search.cpan.org/'); $agent->form_name('f'); $agent->field('query', 'shoes my clown'); $agent->field('mode', 'all'); $agent->click();

        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 BOOK/HTTP-Proxy-0.26.tar.gz 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...
