Steve Kemp has been playing with lua again and now has come up with [an
httpd](http://blog.steve.org.uk/index.php/archives/2005/10/29/107/) in
lua; <i>Go Steve!</i> Clint Adams [says
however](http://xana.scru.org/bamamba/enderskywalker.html) that one can
write a more functional httpd in fewer lines of Z-Shell.

<blockquote>
    pike% apt-cache show zsh
    Package: zsh
    ...
    Installed-Size: 5816
    ...
    pike% apt-cache show lua50 liblua50 liblualib50|grep Installed-Size
    Installed-Size: 180
    Installed-Size: 176
    Installed-Size: 120
    pike% echo $((180+176+120))
    476

</blockquote>
So yeah Clint, you probably can write it in fewer lines, but zsh is a
tad bigger (has more that comes with it).
