Allocate a new HTTP object. The port argument is a number in the range of 0 to 65535 and identifies the process on the network. A port number of 0 means that the service behaves as a CGI. In other words, it runs once and terminates. A port number greater than zero means the service listens on that port number and behaves as a server. In other words, it runs forever.

Return Value

The handle of a new HTTP object or NULL_OB if an error is detected.
