3.1.2 webserver.py

If you do not have a web server you can use the one that comes with the web modules. You can find it in the scripts directory.

Start the server with the following command:

> python webserver.py

Once the server is running you should be able to access the examples at http://localhost:8080/doc/html_multipage/web/examples.html and run scripts in the doc/src/lib directory at http://localhost:8080/doc/src/lib.

By default the only directory you can access scripts in is the doc/src/lib directory and these scripts must be Python files and end in .py. You change which directory should be treated as the cgi-bin directory by changing the options you start the webserver with.

To see a list of options use:

> python webserver.py -h
