Please suggest me a minimalist HTTP proxy for Linux which has the following features:

  • a single executable file - it can be an executable compiled from C/C++ or a Python/Perl script
  • accepts the IP:port to listen from command line at startup
  • doesn't do any caching, only in RAM
  • can block URLs by regexp
  • uses a simple text file as backend for URLs that need to be blocked - one pattern per line
  • has a way to accept more URLs to block at runtime and is able to save them as well
  • has a verbose mode that dumps blocked urls to stdout (for debugging purposes)

Have you looked at all of the ones mentioned on this website? It lists some in java and python.

The site has some broken links, some references to ancient software. But I've found a couple of candidates that I hopefully will be able to tweak for my needs. Thank you. – vtest Oct 22 '10 at 8:15
