static-threaded web server

The static-threaded web server spawns a fixed number of threads. All the threads are concurrently listening for web requests on the same sockets. The kernel distributes the incoming requests to them.

Each thread uses non-blocking I/O so it can serve any number of web requests in parallel.

This web server respects the keep-alive HTTP header to serve multiple HTTP requests via the same connection.
