I have read the manual about the rule files  and have created the following
rule file (one line):

Proxy http http://www/

The ComLine sample program seems to recognise the syntax for the rule file
and try and initilise according to the rule, It comes up with the following
output:

***
*** HostName% w3c -r w3c.conf http://www.iol.ie           
*** A new set of rules is to be added to your setup - continue? (y/n) y
*** Looking up www
*** Contacting www
*** Reading...
*** ...
*** 
But yet the request does NOT go through the proxy server.  Is there
something blatantly obvious that I have missed?  Or is this a symptom of
something more serious?  

With thanks to Henrik for pointing me towards the correct documentation.
