filed, by Roy Keene, is a BSD-licensed simple and above all else fast HTTP server for serving local static files over HTTP from Linux. It does the least amount of effort possible to get to the point of handing the actual transfer over to the kernel. It is multithreaded where every thread services a single concurrent client. It attempts to reduce latency by caching open file descriptors as well. Implemented in C. Designed to be easily ported to other operating systems. Makes fewer system calls than Lighttpd. Currently does not support Connection: keep-alive. Get a mime.types file from somewhere else, maybe Apache.

What is the connection to Tcl?

PYK 2014-06-20: It's a web server that might be of interest to Tcl users. It's small, light-weight, and written by a member of the Tcl community. I think other members of the Tcl community are going to find ways to put it to use in their Tcl-related projects or systems.
