Eyre is the web-server vane (kernel module) that handles client-facing HTTP operations. Unix sends HTTP messages though to Eyre and Eyre produces HTTP messages in response. It is the counterpart to Iris, which is the server-facing HTTP vane.
In general, apps and vanes do not call Eyre; rather, Eyre calls apps and vanes. Eyre uses Gall to facilitate communication with apps.
Eyre is located at
/base/sys/vane/eyre.hoon within Arvo.
