in thread Simple http server one-liner for some static files?

It's not difficult. The "-Mxxx" option to perl loads module "xxx" and "-e" lets you supply an expression to evaluate (a command)

perl -MHTTP::Server::Brick -e '$s=HTTP::Server::Brick->new(port=>8080); $s->mount("/"=>{path=>"/tmp"}); $s->start'

This serves /tmp and its sub-directories, if you don't want that you'll want wildcard=>0 as well as the path.
