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

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:

perl -MHTTP::Daemon -E '$d=HTTP::Daemon->new(LocalPort=>$ARGV[0]||8000 +);say$d->url;while(my$c=$d->accept){while(my$r=$c->get_request){$c->s +end_file_response(".",$r->url->path)}}'

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:

package HTTP::here; use strict; use warnings use Exporter qw( import ); use Whatever::Webserver::you::like; our @EXPORT=qw( serve ); sub serve { my $port=shift; $port||=8080; Whatever::Webserver::you::like->new(port => $port)->run(); } 1;

Using it is as easy:

perl -MHTTP::here -e serve

For a non-default port:

perl -MHTTP::here -e 'serve(8000)'


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
