Comic Server

Michael Jacobson 8/9/02 ~ In NewzPoint there is a comic page generator that gets the current comics from uComics.com and displays them in a single page. I have updated some of this code for my current release and this is a standalone version. To use just run this code in Wish and then point your browser at http://localhost:9108/Comic .

The server behind this code just takes the arguments (+ seperated) and executes them in a safe interp. So you can also do commands like http://localhost:9108/info+command or http://localhost:9108/set+a+23 . Have fun with this...

         Comic Server by Michael Jacobson
         Usage: Launch the server in Wish and then point your
                browser to http://localhost:9108/Comic
                        this will dynamiclly generate a current comic 
                        page.  I have tested this in Mozilla and IE and
                        it seems to work (based on NewzPoint comic page
                        code)
