Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

To get a webpage I could do:

use LWP::Simple;
$webpage=get "http://www.perlmonks.org";

How can this be done if a proxy is present? I tried reading the HTTP and HTTP 1.1 FAQs and am lacking information/understanding on how to request pages from a proxy.
