How to tell libcurl apps via environment variable to use SOCKS proxy?

I couldn't find any information in the manual on how to tell
libcurl-based apps to use a SOCKS proxy. I know I can use http_proxy and
ftp_proxy environment variables, but what about socks?

Does all_proxy usage mean that a socks proxy should be used?

All the best,
