HTTPFILE(4)                                           HTTPFILE(4)

     NAME
          httpfile - serve a single web file

     SYNOPSIS
          httpfile [ -9d ] [ -c count ] [ -f file ] [ -m mtpt ] [ -s
          srvname ] [ -x net ] url

     DESCRIPTION
          Httpfile serves the web page specified by the URL url as a
          new file file in the directory mtpt. The default file is the
          last path element of the URL, and the default mtpt is the
          current directory.

          Httpfile does not download large files all at once.
          Instead, it requests 64-kilobyte blocks as they are needed
          to satisfy reads, caching a few blocks in memory at a time.

          The -D and -d options enable a trace of the 9P traffic and
          general debugging messages.

          The -s option causes httpfile to post the 9P service as
          /srv/srvname and disables the default mount.

          The -x option specifies an alternate network directory
          (e.g., /net.alt).

          The -c option sets the number of file blocks kept cached in
          memory (default 32).

     EXAMPLE
