MORE INFO what are the advantages over any other web server?

faster and massively scalable, and has all the features of an appserver builtin.

Phil Greenspun said it best:

notes on Installation: (read README)

compile your own tcl: (example)
./configure --prefix=/opt/tcl --enable-threads --enable-shared
make install

I pop it in my path:

ln -s /opt/tcl/bin/tclsh8.4 /usr/bin/tclsh

was a real bitch for me on archlinux this time around after it was easy before; until a guy named frankie on irc chat #aolserver (freenode server) gave me the following:

In aolserver-4.5/configure, comment out the below lines, and add right below them:

# case "$LDLIB" in
# *gcc*)
# LDLIB="$LDLIB -nostartfiles"
# ;;
# esac
LDLIB="$LDLIB -nostartfiles"
this now works:
/path/to/tclsh8.4 nsconfig.tcl -install /aolservers_new_dir
make install

In /etc/hosts you must have the ip of your nic matching `uname -n`

after you cp base.tcl to nsd.tcl; you must 
chown -R your_user: /aolservers_new_dir 
bin/nsd -ft nsd.tcl -u your_user    
will start the server on port 8000.

then tune into http://your_ip:8000 and blam! your in bizness
