  Description     : library to parse proxy auto-config files

a library to parse proxy auto-config (PAC) files. Proxy auto-config files are
a vastly used proxy configuration method these days. Web browsers can use a PAC
file to determine which proxy server to use or whether to go direct for a given
URL. PAC files are written in JavaScript and can be programmed to return
different proxy methods (e.g. "PROXY proxy1:port; DIRECT") depending upon URL,
source IP address, protocol, time of the day etc. PAC files introduce a lot of
possibilities. Look at the wikipedia link above to find out more about them.
