+thttpd (the tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server)
+thttpd is a simple, small, portable, fast, and secure HTTP server.
+Simple: It handles only the minimum necessary to implement HTTP/1.1.
+Well, maybe a little more than the minimum. Small: It has a very
+small run-time size, since it does not fork and is very careful about
+memory allocation. Portable: It compiles cleanly on most any
+Unix-like OS. Fast: In typical use it's about as fast as the best
+full-featured servers. Secure: It goes to great lengths to protect
+the web server machine against attacks and breakins from other sites.
+By default the directory to serve through HTTP will be '/var/www/thttpd',
+if you want to change it execute the SalckBuild for example as:
+ # WEBDIR='/opt/www' sh thttpd.SlackBuild
+for example.
+To build and use this package the user/group 'thttpd' is required to
+exists in your system. You can add it with:
+ # groupadd -g 227 thttpd
+ # useradd -u 227 -g 227 -c "User for thttpd" -d / -s /bin/false thttpd
