Summary:  Fast, lightweight, non-forking HTTP server for UN*X systems.
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.

For preventing conflicts with another HTTP-services Mathopd in ALTLinux
listens on port 8000 instead of standard port 80.
