Instances of the HTTP::Daemon class are HTTP/1.1 servers that listen on a
socket for incoming requests. The HTTP::Daemon is a subclass of
IO::Socket::INET, so you can perform socket operations directly on it too.
The accept() method will return when a connection from a client is available.
The returned value will be an HTTP::Daemon::ClientConn object which is
another IO::Socket::INET subclass. Calling the get_request() method on this
object will read data from the client and return an HTTP::Request object. The
ClientConn object also provide methods to send back various responses.
This HTTP daemon does not fork(2) for you. Your application, i.e. the user of
the HTTP::Daemon is responsible for forking if that is desirable. Also note
that the user is responsible for generating responses that conform to the
HTTP/1.1 protocol.
