From its start, Perl comes with most (Unix) core operating system trickery like forks, events and signals. So, you can implement real performing daemons for interesting tasks.

We will get into various features which show how straight-forward it is to implement an Apache-like webserver, with VirtualHosts, proxies, etc.

But we start by discussing many options how to set-up servers: processes, event-loops, and so on... before we reach to HTTP-servers processing requests.
