Help: SOCKS5 proxy, pass host name to proxy
Use the specified SOCKS5 proxy (and let the proxy resolve the host name). If
the port number is not specified, it is assumed at port 1080.
This option overrides any previous use of --proxy, as they are mutually
Since 7.21.7, this option is superfluous since you can specify a socks5
hostname proxy with --proxy using a socks5h:// protocol prefix.
Since 7.52.0, --preproxy can be used to specify a SOCKS proxy at the same time
--proxy is used with an HTTP/HTTPS proxy. In such a case curl first connects to
the SOCKS proxy and then connects (through SOCKS) to the HTTP or HTTPS proxy.
If this option is used several times, the last one will be used.
