       filterproxy - a filtering web proxy


       filterproxy [-h-k-f<file>-p<port>-n]


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the  filterproxy command.  This
       manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux  distribution  because
       the original program does not have a manual page.

       filterproxy  is  a  perl script that acts as a generic web proxy. It is
       unique in that it allows "Modules" to be  installed  that  can  perform
       arbitrary  transofrmations  on HTML (or any other mime-type). Currently
       it filters ads, and compresses HTML  content  (for  a  5-1  speedup  on
       modems!)  Configuration is done with web forms.


       A summary of options is included below.

              Specify the port to which  FilterProxy  will  bind  (default  is

       -n     Do  not  daemonize: stay connected to the terminal from which it
              was started and print debugging messages.
