This provides a class to do all the heavy lifting of acting as a web server handling the HTTP and HTTPS protocols. You just need to create an instance of it in your program, configure it with a port it is to listen on, and set another object in your program to act as a delegate. The delegate then handles the pre-parsed incoming requests in a similar way to a CGI script being run by a more conventional web server. The library also handles logging and provides many configuration options and helper methods of course.
