Bug#236284: ITP: mathopd -- Very small, yet very fast HTTP server

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : mathopd
  Version         : 1.5p2
  Upstream Author : Michiel Boland <Michiel at Boland.org>
* URL             : http://www.mathopd.org/

  Description     : Very small, yet very fast HTTP server

Mathopd is a very small, yet very fast HTTP server for UN*X systems.

Mathopd supports useful features of HTTP/1.1, such as persistent
connections, partial responses and pipelining. It does not support
things like content negotation. The latest version of the software
(1.5) also supports CGI/1.1.

Mathopd was designed specifically to run as a single process, and to
never grow in size. When this software was first written (early 1996)
this is something that other HTTP servers were not very good at.
