The web-server/dispatchers/dispatch-files module allows files to be served. It defines a dispatcher construction procedure.
Uses url->path to extract a path from the URL in the request object. If this path does not exist, then the dispatcher does not apply and next-dispatcher is invoked. If the path is a directory, then the indices are checked in order for an index file to serve. In that case, or in the case of a path that is a file already, path->mime-type is consulted for the MIME Type of the path. The file is then streamed out the connection object.
This dispatcher supports HTTP Range GET requests and HEAD requests.
