Zepto Web Server is a tiny open source HTTP web server well-written in C that can handle simple HTTP requests and serve information in HTML format by using dynamic modules that can be loaded at runtime.

One way to achieve this is to manually create your email address as an image and embed it to your contact page. Most of the times we want this operation to be automatically. So, I have created a simple example to show you how you can make this possible.

It is true that Software Programming is a branch of Computer Science about which I’m pretty enthusiastic. But I’m very excited at the times when I learn something new and innovative on programming. Such a period of learning of new issues on programming was when I began to wonder about the way the Internet works.
