Usually, Tor works like that: a daemon starts in background, reads
torrc and listens on
SocksPort (usually 9050). Then an application uses
localhost:9050 as a SOCKS5 proxy and performs requests over Tor that way.
What I want to do is to perform a request over the Tor network on GNU/Linux without starting localhost proxy. Something like
torify curl, but without SOCKS5 proxies. So is there a way to send a request over Tor without using local proxy?
