Tcl Http server that is very configurable amd scriptable. It can be
in the tclkit "scripted document" for very easy deployment on
one or numerous machines. The scripted document is cross-platform and
includes a non-sql database, whose data is stored in a compressed and

free with broad range of available libraries.
dev.scriptics.com is a starting point, but
http://www.arsdigita.com/books/tcl/ by Philip Greenspun (of MIT and
photo.net fame), et al, has the best briefest introduction to Tcl that
