I used the mentioned example, and it works.
Be sure to have exec-permissions on the file and the correct filename in

I do think the redirector-facility is a hot shot and requires some work, esp.
better error-handling to become usable in production systems. There should be
a way to restart redirectors in case they exit, and an option to restart them
automatically after some time-period has expired. If this features are
availible, it is acceptable to dump core if no redirector is restartable, but
as it stands now, you must keep a script have an eye on squid...

When i use perl as redirector, the problem is that perl may eventually hit
some memory limits and exit...
