hi ppl

is it possible to redirect a plain GET request say

GET / HTTP/1.0

to another url?? ... ie. I have a redirecting perl script running with the
line ...


so that it tries to redirect to the proxycfg host that will spit back the
proxy autoconfig for web clients using proxy autoconfig ...

what I've tried thus far doesn't work.

has anyone tried to do this sort of thing already? or does squid refuse
the URL that is requested before it gets to the redirector stage.

any ideas would be appreciated.
