HTTP-Server-Brick version 0.1.6
$Id$
HTTP::Server::Brick allows you to quickly wrap a prototype web server around some
Perl code. The underlying server daemon is HTTP::Daemon and the performance should
be fine for demo's, light internal systems, etc.
See the POD documentation in the module for more information.
INSTALLATION
To install with Module::Build, you can use the following commands:
perl Build.PL
./Build
./Build test
./Build install
Alternatively, run the following commands (Module::Build is still
required, this is just a wrapper):
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
DEPENDENCIES

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
It's version 0.1.6 - there's bound to be some bugs!
The tests fail on windows due to forking limitations. I don't see any
reason why the server itself won't work but I haven't tried it
personally, and I have to figure out a way to test it from a test
script that will work on Windows.
In forking mode there is no attempt to limit the number of forked
children - beware of forking yourself ;)
No attention has been given to propagating any exception text into the
http error (although the exception/die message will appear in the
error_log).
Versions 1.02 and earlier of HTTP::Daemon::SSL has a
feature/documentation conflict where it will never timeout. This means
your server won't respond to a HUP signal until the next request is
served. Version 1.03_01 (developer release) and later do not have this
issue.
Latest versions are always available from CPAN. Development versions
are available from my CVS repository:
