Re: How can I use curl to test a proxy is socks5 or not?

I know curl can use socks5 proxy. But in my case, I've so many proxies,
and I just want curl to test it and give me informations for me to pick out
the ones on line and the type is socks5.

In detail, I want to use curl for a socks5-proxy-checker to fastly
determine the ones I want to pick out. Can it does this job?
