NAME

AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks - Adds socks support for AnyEvent::HTTP

SYNOPSIS

  use AnyEvent::HTTP;
  use AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks;
  
  http_get 'http://www.google.com/', socks => 'socks5://localhost:1080', sub {
      print $_[0];
  };

DESCRIPTION

This module adds new `socks' option to all http_* functions exported by AnyEvent::HTTP. So you can specify socks proxy for HTTP requests.

This module uses IO::Socket::Socks as socks library, so any global variables like $IO::Socket::Socks::SOCKS_DEBUG can be used to change the behavior.

Socks string structure is:

  scheme://login:password@host:port
  ^^^^^^   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^ ^^^^
    1             2         3    4

1 - scheme can be one of the: socks4, socks4a, socks5

2 - "login:password@" part can be ommited if no authorization for socks proxy needed. For socks4 proxy "password" should be ommited, because this proxy type doesn't support login/password authentication, login will be interpreted as userid.

3 - ip or hostname of the proxy server

4 - port of the proxy server

You can also make connection through a socks chain. Simply specify several socks proxies in the socks string and devide them by tab(s) or space(s):

  "socks4://10.0.0.1:1080  socks5://root:123@10.0.0.2:1080  socks4a://85.224.100.1:9010"

METHODS

AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks->inject('Package::Name')

Add socks support to some package based on AnyEvent::HTTP.

Example:

        use AnyEvent::HTTP;
        use AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks;
        use AnyEvent::Google::PageRank qw(rank_get);
        use strict;
        
        AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks->inject('AnyEvent::Google::PageRank');
        
        rank_get 'http://mail.com', socks => 'socks4://localhost:1080', sub {
                warn $_[0];
        };

NOTICE

You should load AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks after AnyEvent::HTTP, not before. Or simply load only AnyEvent::HTTP::Socks and it will load AnyEvent::HTTP automatically.
