Hi, I've been working on a HTTP server written in perl (originally from
Marc VanHeyningen at  I've gotten to the point where I'm
happy with it for my needs and thought maybe someone else might find it

I'm currently calling it version 0.14.  You can always get the latest
from <A HREF="">here</A>.

You can try it out using the <A HREF="">server</A>
I have setup for my company if you like.


 o Very easy to setup (all code is written in perl)
 o README file with helpful tips
 o config file for easy setup
 o HTML docs <A HREF="">here</A>
 o can be run by normal user if not using port 80
 o chroot() support for more security if wanted
 o directory browser (with last modification, size and file/directory info)
 o date server sample code
 o finger server sample code
 o Other sample gateways from the original code (siks, neuro, sunman)
 o "loadable" drivers (helpful in debugging new gateways)

The code is provided ``as is'', and without warranty but feel free to
send me <> comments and I'll try and make it better.
If you write other gateways using this scheme please send them to me
and I'll try and integrate them.
