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.

    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.

      Hmm. I will get the latest version. In the pre-first-tarball one I tried, the only way it'd work with the proxy was to add the line I mentioned to the cookie script and at least one other, though I can't remember what it was offhand.

      PS: is there a changelog anywhere?
