I had a play with this.
Just a few hundred lines of code (including embedded HTML) and
Ada code happily talks HTTP with Netscape. I just have to write
a bit more to decode the POST data from the forms and I will put
this on the web.
This is non-industrial strength proof of concept code only.
My curiousity is satisified, and without $$$ I don't intend to
develop this too much further.
