Yaws is a high performance HTTP 1.1 webserver written in Erlang. It is a
multithreaded webserver where one Erlang light weight process is used to
handle each client. Two separate modes of operation are supported.
This package includes binaries and config to run Yaws in standalone mode
where it works as a regular webserver daemon.
