Re: Pass through perl http proxy server (no code, just advice)by BooK (Curate)

Well, uh, I'm just writing a module that's called HTTP::Proxy. ;-)
The goal is to be able to pass every request and response though a set of configurable Perl "filters".
Here's an example script that creates a anonymizing proxy, just like in merlyn's column (his script has been one of my inspirations, along with two others scritps by Abigail and Rafael Garcia-Suarez):
(This code works with the development version.)
The proxy is not fully functional yet, though. One of my goal is to create a set of filters that would log the whole session, so that yet another script could (automatically) create a web robot from the session transcript.
If you are interested, there is a web site (older versions and CVS snapshot) and a mailing-list at http://http-proxy.mongueurs.net/. I am interested in help, and comments on the API (which is subject to change).
