Is there a SOCKS proxy server program that supports a HTTP parent proxy?

(that is, I am using a program that requires a SOCKS proxy server, but I only have a HTTP proxy server. The SOCKS proxy server would be run on my computer like Polipo (which is a HTTP proxy server program that supports a SOCKS parent proxy).)
