    Did you try setting your 'http_proxy' environment variable to 'http://proxy:port'? That's the standard way for LWP scripts.
      True, but the script needs to be told to use the proxy. For pm_login, add this line between lines 18 and 24:
      $ua->proxy( 'http', $ENV{ HTTP_PROXY } ) if $ENV{ HTTP_PROXY };
      I'm sure similar additions can be made to each script that needs it to add proxy functionality.
      Love justice; desire mercy.

        You're right of course, you do need to tell the UserAgent to use the proxy, but if you use the standard variable names (all lower case) then you simply say:

        You shouldn't need to do this. The module automatically calls $ua->env_proxy;
        You should need merely to   export http_proxy=http://host:port
        or   setenv http_proxy http://host:port
        You might want to retrieve the latest version, too. It has some nice new features.
