I'd like to have a go at writing CGI in Haskell. However, I don't really
want to install and configure the likes of Apache just to quickly test a
simple CGI script. I was hoping that I could find a trivial little HTTP
server on Hackage somewhere that would be just a simple binary that I
can execute and feed CGI binaries to. But alas, the closest thing I can
Alas, this does not work on Windows since it depends on the "unix"
package. (In fact, almost every network-related package on Hackage
depends on "unix", for reasons beyond my powers of comprehension...)
(I also looked at non-Haskell lightweight web servers, but they all
unanimously don't support CGI at all, or only support CGI _scripts_, but
Does anybody know of a solution that works on Windows?
