 Webserver written in PS

Here's an interesting thread over at SlashDot:


It begins by chuckling about a web server written in LISP, then turns to
PS.  In fact, a web server HAS been written in PS, and the code was posted

released under the GNU license.  If you go to his web page,

http://www.*-*-*.com/ :8080/

you will find that it has been served by the PS web server.

But it turns out that this implementation uses Ghostscript, and a purist

> Running it under Ghostscript is cheating. Now,
> if you could actually run a web-server from a
> postscript printer, that would impress me ...!

to which Pugo replies:

> Of course it's cheating, as I say on the webpage.
> The problem is that there aren't any support for
> TCP/IP in normal Postscript. Maybe I should mail
> Adobe and tell them that they should add support
> for TCP/IP in next version of Postscript.

For further details, see the SlashDot thread.
