Re^5: Simple http server one-liner for some static files?by afoken (Canon)

The implementation (a perl script) is not a one liner, but the execution (calling the perl script) is.
If the OP insists, (s)he could make it a one-liner:
Yes, this is hard to read, hard to remember, and generally a stupid idea. (And yes, I'm kind of violating my own rule.) The clean way is to use a script.
Also, writing a module optimized for using in a one-liner isn't that hard:
Using it is as easy:perl -MHTTP::here -e serve
For a non-default port:perl -MHTTP::here -e 'serve(8000)'
