in reply to Perl script to change the proxy settings of Google chrome

I haven't looked into setting web proxy settings for a specific browser, but you might want to check out the netsh command's winhttp context commands to set the proxy setting for the entire Windows OS. This will affect all of your web browsers that you have installed. If that accomplishes what you want as far as proxy settings go, you can then have your Perl code make a system call to run the netsh command.

    Yes dasgar,

    Currently i have this as a work around (using set proxy). But specifically i need to change only Chrome's proxy settings. However i had a look at the link posted by "rovf" but i didn't get anything that suits my criteria. Anyway i'll pass on this for now.
