in reply to LWP::Simple request through a proxy

Your code isn't doing an LWP::Simple request. It's doing its request through LWP::UserAgent (LWP::Simple will use LWP::UserAgent itself as well). Do one to three things:
  • Forget about LWP::Simple. You seem to cope with LWP::UserAgent fine.
  • Use LWP::Simple, and have it export $ua. Set up the proxy through $au, as in your code (But the method above is just as easy).
  • Either use LWP::UserAgent or LWP::Simple as described above, and setup the proxy using environment variables and a call to $au -> env_proxy.
Futher note that the second argument of the proxy method must be the proxy you are using - not the site you want to reach via a proxy.

    Step two above is exactly what I wanted but I wasn't quite sure exactly what was required but I am now so for others for future reference:
    # use proxy (comment out if not) my %proxy = ( host => 'http://proxy:8080' ); use LWP::Simple qw(mirror RC_OK RC_NOT_MODIFIED $ua); $ua->proxy(http => "$proxy{host}") if (defined $proxy{host});
    You can see I'm just interested in using mirror.
