"Cheap" Perl HTTPD for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/XP
IntroductionThis software assumes you are running TCP/IP on a Windows 95/98/ME/NT/XP PC. By installing this software, you can use a Windows PC to host a Web site. The Web server (a.k.a. HTTP daemon) is written in Perl and can be readily modified as required to meet your individual needs.
SoftwareThis software can be downloaded from http://www.lightner.net/lightner/bruce/httpd/w95httpd.zip.
Files ending in ".lnk" are "symbolic links" to other files/directories. Such link files should contain a single line with the full path to another file/directory. Files ending in ".cgi" and files stored in a directory named "cgi-bin" (in the HTTP root directory) are assumed to be proper Perl CGI scripts.
ManifestThe directory \HTTP should contain the following files:
httpd.bat - batch file to start HTTP daemon httpd.pl - HTTP daemon (Perl script) index.htm - this Web page inetd.exe - Windows 95/NT INETD executable (needed to start Perl HTTP daemon) inetd.c - Windows 95/NT INETD source code perl.exe - Perl executable perl100.dll - Perl DLL Cmd32.exe - Perl "helper" application (for system command) Perlglob.exe - Perl "helper" application readme - help file
