  7.5. How can I purge an object from my cache?

  Squid does not allow you to purge objects unless it is configured with
  access controls in squid.conf. First you must add something like

          acl PURGE method PURGE
          acl localhost src
          http_access allow PURGE localhost
          http_access deny PURGE

  The above only allows purge requests which come from the local host
  and denies all other purge requests.

  To purge an object, you can use the client program:

          client -m PURGE

  If the purge was successful, you will see a ``200 OK'' response:

          HTTP/1.0 200 OK
          Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 16:03:32 GMT
          Server: Squid/1.1.14

  If the object was not found in the cache, you will see a ``404 Not
  Found'' response:

          HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found
          Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 16:03:22 GMT
          Server: Squid/1.1.14
