    You haven't posted the entire script - for instance, the processing of $ARGV[0] is lacking.

    Then, http://search.cpan.org/~gaas/libwww-perl-5.808/lib/LWP/Simple.pm isn't a valid HTTP Proxy address. A HTTP Proxy is basically (sort of) a web server which asks other web servers on behalf of the connecting client, and that's not what you get addressing a single file on the CPAN search server.

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

    I can't reproduce your error, the script runs fine for me.

    Perhaps you should tell us which argument you provided to your script that made it fail.

    As oha explain in the CB, HTTP requests have to use absolute URLs, mostly likely you provided a relative URL somewhere.

    BTW it's quite weird to use a HTML page as a proxy URL.
