Projects / www_proxy


www_proxy is a non-caching HTTP proxy with capability of modifying the User-Agent field. It has customizable content filterig capablity and unlike most proxy servers, it logs the contents of the body of a POST request, not just the header. This tool is handy for debugging CGI scripts, search engine submission programs, bypassing problematic routes and firewalls, and for getting rid of junk HTML content.

    Release Notes: Added custom content filters. You can now write a program/script that reads STDIN, changes the content that came from the web server, and writes the modified content to STDOUT, and use it for a filter. C, C++, awk, sed, Perl, anyhting will do for a filter. www_proxy now needs the new version of libtcp++ (0.0.1c) also available at the download page.
