LWP::UserAgent With Socks Proxy Support Or Similar Solution

I'm looking for a way to establish a connection to a server using a SOCKS proxy instead of the supported protocols for LWP::UserAgent (HTTP, etc.). If this is not possible, is there a module similar to LWP::UserAgent that supports SOCKS proxies?

Thanks in advanced

Have you looked at IO::Socket::Socke?  http://search.cpan.org/dist/IO-Socket-Socks/

Does this work for you:
http://www.io.com/~kazushi/unix/socks.html#perl

And this guy offers his linked Perls-SOCKS modules (look at the botom of that page):

Good luck,

Nothing has happened on this question in more than 6 weeks. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
split points [grade B] between davorg and PurplePerls (pointers only).
