Interesting.  This server is much faster than the OS/A65 based C64 web
server that was set up at some German site for some weeks a few years ago.
Where is the content stored?  In the main memory?  I think that the
previous implementation (which was pure 6502 language, as far as I know)
used 1541 disk storage.  When I connected to that server's HTTP port with
telnet, I could clearly see pauses in the HTML stream every 254 bytes.

Hmm, didn't the ancestor of cc65 run directly on Atari hardware, without
having to be a cross-compiler? :-)
