library for proxy detection

Only days after I wrote about the pacparser, another and in many ways more complete approach to detecting what proxy to use for accessing various internet resources emerge: libproxy.

One of the main authors of it, Alex Panit, already submitted a feature-request for libcurl to support this. but I’m not at all convinced that is a good idea. It seems the authors submit “please include support for this”-requests all over in similar and related projects – similar in style to how metalink did.

As usual, I value your input and feedback so please raise your voice and speak up!

So far this young project lacks docs on API and install process, so I haven’t yet even been able to build it for a test drive…
