B.18 server: Runs an HTTP server to perform STILTS commands

server runs an HTTP server which makes various elements of STILTS functionality available as HTTP services, so that they can be run by local or remote clients making HTTP requests rather than from the more usual command line interface.

When you run server it will start up a server which runs until it is interrupted, and write to standard output the base URL at which it can be accessed, for instance "http://localhost:2112/stilts/". If you point your browser here you will see some examples (hyperlinks to service requests) of how to use the server.

See Section 11 for more discussion of the server functionality available.

Note: The server command and associated servlet code are somewhat experimental. If you have requirements which are not currently provided, please contact the author for discussion.
