HTTP-Server-Brick version 0.1.4 $Id$ 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 LWP Test::More version BUGS AND LIMITATIONS It's version 0.1.4 - 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.
