Developing Own Web Server


Hi All,

I would like to develop a simple web server that can serve web pages using perl. I know there are lots of web servers in the market.

But I want to understand the concept underlying working of a web server.

Please provide me if there are any good links available for this.

Awaiting for your response.

You want to look up "perl listen socket". Here's the first entry to get you started.

I think developing your own web server would be a huge undertaking requiring many hours and considerable programming skills, but also a lot of fun

Another good place to start:
You should look up the HTTP specification here
