There is an exemple in the inets package. You should have a look at
The given configuration exemples are made to use this module as an erlang CGI
by default.

I think the advantage is that you can customized your application to exactly

program very easy to use and install.

The drawback is that you need to developp a program supporting at least a
subset of the http protocol.
