GNU Proxyknife
Validate free proxies for users behind firewalls.

GNU Proxyknife is a customizable multithread proxy hunter. It can help users behind strict firewall find suitable free proxies. gnu Proxyknife reads proxylist1 from the file, stdin or the web, then validates the free proxies and prints the good ones. Time intervals and the others which are userful to estimate the speed or capability of every proxy are also printed. The whole processing can be customized by the user, which is different from the other hunters. In url mode, Proxyknife can read a large number of proxies on machines with little memory. It works on GNU/Linux, SunOS, OSF1 and more.
