darkhttpd server

Glad that lighthttpd is already in the repository yet could still appreciate an alternative http server with perhaps different features or options.

Hi valuequest
apache2.tcz, araneum-0.8.2.tcz, cherokee.tcz,  mongoose.tcz, and monkey.tcz are also in the repository, among
possibly others that I missed.

Hi valuequest:
The python language (installed on most systems) gives you a simple "Instant Webserver"
Just open a terminal and cd to the folder containing the files you want to share, then:

$ python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

Firefox; http;//localhost:8000
shows the files in the folder.
If there is an index.html in that folder it will be shown

Security? Production? probably not
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question
