  I'd like a simple, efficient, scalable HTTP server written in C ...
Check out libebb - http://tinyclouds.org/libebb/. It was created by Ryah Dahl (node.js fame) and is a solid piece of software. We used it in our WebROaR server for ruby web applications.

Sidenote: libebb's Ragel based parser is derived from Mongrel.




That is great. I'd never heard of libebb before but have a couple of things I can already use this for. Thanks for sharing.

Mongrel is GPL, more or less. libebb claims to be X11 licensed. How is this possible?

Ruby Mongrel is both GPL or Ruby licensed, mostly to keep Debian happy.

Mongrel2 however is AGPL.
