NAME
       tsocks  - Shell wrapper to simplify the use of the tsocks(8) library to
       transparently allow an application to use a SOCKS proxy

SYNOPSIS
       tsocks [application [application's arguments]]
       or tsocks [on|off]
       or tsocks

DESCRIPTION
       tsocks is a wrapper between the tsocks library and the application what
       you would like to run socksified.

OPTIONS
       [application [application's arguments]]
	      run   the	  application	as   specified	with  the  environment
	      (LD_PRELOAD) set such that tsocks(8)  will  transparently	 proxy
	      SOCKS connections	in that	program

       [on|off]
	      this  option adds	or removes tsocks(8) from the LD_PRELOAD envi-
	      ronment variable.	When tsocks(8) is in this  variable  all  exe-
	      cuted  applications are automatically socksified.	If you want to
	      use this function, you HAVE to  source  the  shell  script  from
	      yours,  like this: "source /usr/local/bin/tsocks"	or ". /usr/lo-
	      cal/bin/tsocks"
	      Example:
	      ". tsocks	on" -- add the tsocks lib to LD_PRELOAD
	      ". tsocks	off" --	remove the tsocks lib from LD_PRELOAD

       [show|sh]
	      show the current value of	the LD_PRELOAD variable

       <without	any argument>
	      create a new shell with LD_PRELOAD including tsocks(8).

AUTHOR
       This script was created by Tamas	SZERB <toma@rulez.org> for the	debian
       package	of  tsocks.  It	 (along	with this manual page) have since been
       adapted into the	main tsocks project and	modified.
