1 This is Hydra, a modification of Boa, which supports multiple threads of
2 execution. Boa is a high performance web server for Unix-alike computers,
3 covered by the Gnu General Public License. This modification is based on
4 Boa version 0.94.13, and is currently of alpha quality.

6 Why Hydra? Well, Lernean Hydra was a nine headed, monstrous serpent in
7 Greek Mythology, and seemed to resemble fine a multi-threaded Boa. An
8 interesting feature of Hydra is that a head, when cut off was replaced by
9 two others. This was not duplicated in Hydra's threads!

17 --disable-smp: Disables all of the thread stuff. Hydra will function just like
18 Boa.
