#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use LWP::UserAgent;

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;

if (defined $ARGV[0]) {

    $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
    $ua->proxy(["http", "ftp"], "http://proxy.myproxy.net:3128");
    my $request = HTTP::Request->new("GET", "http://cnn.com/");
    my $response = $ua->request($request);
    print $response->status_line,"\n";

} else {


    $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
    my $request = HTTP::Request->new("GET", "http://cnn.com/");
    my $response = $ua->request($request);
    print $response->status_line,"\n";

}                                                    



of course you need to change http://proxy.myproxy.net:3128 to the url of the proxy you want to test.


if this script gets a commandline argument (no matter which) - it will try to use the proxy, otherwise it will try going direct.
