perl running mechanize through tor

To run Perl's WWW::Mechanize module through Tor, you can use the LWP::UserAgent module along with the LWP::Protocol::socks module. The LWP::Protocol::socks module allows you to specify a SOCKS proxy, which can be used to route your requests through Tor.

Here's an example code snippet that demonstrates how to configure WWW::Mechanize to use Tor:

use strict;
use warnings;
use LWP::UserAgent;
use LWP::Protocol::socks;
use WWW::Mechanize;

# Set up the Tor SOCKS proxy
$ENV{PERL_LWP_ENV_PROXY} = 'socks://localhost:9050';

# Create a new LWP::UserAgent object
my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;

# Create a new WWW::Mechanize object
my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(agent => $ua);

# Make requests through Tor

In this example, we first set the PERL_LWP_ENV_PROXY environment variable to 'socks://localhost:9050'. This tells the LWP::UserAgent object to use the Tor SOCKS proxy running on localhost and listening on port 9050. Then, we create a new LWP::UserAgent object and pass it to the WWW::Mechanize constructor.

Finally, we can make requests using $mech->get('') or perform other actions supported by WWW::Mechanize.

Remember to have Tor running on your system before executing this code. Additionally, make sure you have the necessary Perl modules (LWP::UserAgent, LWP::Protocol::socks, and WWW::Mechanize) installed before running the code.
