Re: Use curl-library as server???

I would believe Jack was asking more on the lines of a LIBRARY, such as
libcurl, that could be used to add HTTP server functionality to an
existing (C) program. The closest to this would be something like
mini_httpd and its relatives, micro_httpd and thttpd.
I looked for something like an HTTP server library some time ago, and
finally used SWILL (yeah, that's its name), more information here:
It hasn't been updated for several years now, so watch out.
