Hi Folks,

I am very pleased to announce the release of "pacparser" - a C library
to parse proxy auto-config (PAC) scripts. Needless to say, PAC files
are now a widely accepted method for proxy configuration management
and almost all popular browsers support them. The idea behind
pacparser is to make it easy to add this PAC file parsing capability
to other programs. It comes as a shared C library with a clear API.
You can use it to make any C or python (using ctypes) program PAC
scripts intelligent. Some very useful targets could be popular web
software like wget, curl and python-urllib.

For documentation and available packages, please visit project home page at:

For the ones who like to start with source code, here is the link to
direct download for source code:

Cheers :-),
