The Best way is the Perl as redirector in squid is concept .

request ---> squid ----> redirector ----> squid -----> backto client

remember squid give the request to redirector after fetching the data. and
redirector process it that, So most of the work is done.

        What a redirector can do in this case is applying some filter and a
applying the filter is the most easy thing in Perl. SO better use the Perl
not C as it will cause more load on the system.
