implemented in python using select. testing using 'unittest'. contains the basic asynchronous server implementation;
clients are stored in a list, and the event loop calls select() with a list of their sockets. Then, the clients are notified if there are any readable/writable/etc sockets that they own. The client connection class that is used can be specified when making the Server object. builds on it to implement a http server, with HTTPClient implementing the basic HTTP server, and HTTPDirClient implementing the static file server.
./ port requires the server to be active at the same port, it won't start it.
Testing took more time than desired, I wasn't sure if I was allowed to use the standard http library (or if it supports the neccesary tests without too much trouble), so I implemented some client functions.
