Writing at OSnews.com, Jon Nelson reviews Boa, a small-footprint webserver that is popular in resource-constrained Linux-based embedded systems and mobile devices. Nelson write . . .
” . . . Boa has minimal resource requirements. The stripped binary size on Linux using gcc 2.95.3 and GNU libc 2.2.5 is 61K (495K statically linked).
