       net-server - Base Net::Server starting module

	   net-server [base type] [net server arguments]

	   net-server PreFork ipv '*'

	   net-server HTTP

	   net-server HTTP app foo.cgi

	   net-server HTTP app foo.cgi app /=bar.cgi

	   net-server HTTP port	8080 port 8443/ssl ipv '*' server_type PreFork --SSL_key_file=my.key --SSL_cert_file=my.crt access_log_file STDERR

       The net-server program gives a simple way to test out code and try port
       connection parameters.  Though the running server can be	robust enough
       for full	tim use, it is anticipated that	this binary will just be used
       for basic testing of net-server ports, acting as	a simple echo server,
       or for running development scripts as CGI.

       "base type"
	   The very first argument may be a Net::Server	flavor.	 This is given
	   as shorthand	for writing out	server_type "ServerFlavor".
	   Additionally, this allows types such	as HTTP	and PSGI, which	are
	   not true Net::Server	base types, to subclass	other server types via
	   an additional server_type argument.

	       net-server PreFork

	       net-server HTTP	# becomes a HTTP server	in the Fork flavor

	       net-server HTTP server_type PreFork  # preforking HTTP server

	   Port	to bind	upon.  Default is 80 if	running	a HTTP server as root,
	   8080	if running a HTTP server as non-root, or 20203 otherwise.

	   Multiple value can be given for binding to multiple ports.  All of
	   the methods for specifying port attributes enumerated in
	   Net::Server and Net::Server::Proto are available here.

	       net-server port 20201

	       net-server port 20202

	       net-server port 20203/IPv6

	   Host	to bind	to.  Default is	*.  Will bind to an IPv4 socket	if an
	   IPv4	address	is given.  Will	bind to	an IPv6	socket if an IPv6
	   address is given (requires installation of IO::Socket::INET6).

	   If a	hostname is given and "ipv" is still set to 4, an IPv4 socket
	   will	be created.  If	a hostname is given and	"ipv" is set to	6, an
	   IPv6	socket will be created.	 If a hostname is given	and "ipv" is
	   set to * (default), a lookup	will be	performed and any available
	   IPv4	or IPv6	addresses will be bound.  The "ipv" parameter can be
	   set directly, or passed along in the	port, or additionally can be
	   passed as part of the hostname.

	       net-server host localhost

	       net-server host localhost/IPv4

       There are many more options available.  Please see the Net::Server
