sws - Simple | Small | Safe Web Server
sws is a simple web server written in /bin/sh. It should be able to run out of
inetd on any Unix, Linux, or BSD system. It provides directory indexing
and serving of files under the document dir. The default document directory
is /usr/local/sws/docs/, this may be changed at install time by editing
the config area at the top of the program. Directory indexing may also be
turned off by changing the vlaue of DOINDEX to anything other than yes in the
config section of the program.
sws prevents escaping the document directory tree and also ignores any trailing
information after the URL to prevent compromise of the system on which it
sws will serve only static pages. It has no provision for cgi programs.

sws requires /bin/sh, dirname, cat, and date to function. These should
be found on any modern POSIX system.
