Or better yet just launch and Ada program that starts
the browser (in Win32 you can start the registered
browser easily IE or Netscape with a shell start api
call) and then generates then index file with a simple
meta tag that just refers back to itself with its
local IP port.
Example generated file:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0;
Where 1234 is generated on the fly based on the port
The entire httpd engine can just be a simple set of
packages that you register code with ala call back
