1. Find out which files (exact URLs) that are cached that you want to
expire from the cache, and put these in a file. This list can be derived
from store.log, or by using the tool mentioned on squid-users for
searching the cache directories.

2. Enable the PURGE method in squid.conf.
   acl PURGE method PURGE
   http_access allow PURGE localhost

3. Build the tcp-banger2 tool, available in the test-suite directory
   cd test-suite
   make tcp-banger2

4. Purge the list of objects from your cache
   cat urls.list | awk '{print "PURGE",$0}' ./tcp-banger -n 2
