This library implements a core HTTP server for Boost that can be used from resource-constrained devices to powerful machines that have plenty of resources to make use of and can speed up the server (such as extra ram available to pools and extra cpus available to multithreaded servers).
A future aim of the library is to support several http transport mechanisms, but continue to expose http power (100-continue, chunked entities, upgrade, ...). Thanks to the first requirement, runtime polymorphism is avoided, but support for runtime-based polymorphism is also present.

You can generate documentation using the Boost.Build-based rules within the doc directory. Like so:
cd doc b2
If you can't (or just don't want) generate the documentation, just look at the generated documentation found on the
gh-pages branch or the http://boostgsoc14.github.io/boost.http/ site.
