tachyon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a need to implement an http filter ie Net Nanny/Surf Control style to protect innocent students from the evils of the internet at large. OK so I want to write a proxy server to accept requests, validate the URL and then do pass through/deny. I know how to do all of this with sockets, fork, redirects and a DBMS. The question is boring. Although I really love reinventing wheels I wish to learn from those who have gone before so any suggestions of what is currently available for me to R&D* would be appreciated.
