netcat-1.10: description + notes
is a simple Unix utility which reads and writes data
across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol.
It is designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can
be used directly or easily driven by other programs and
scripts. At the same time, it is a feature-rich network
debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost
any kind of connection you would need and has several
interesting built-in capabilities. Netcat, or "nc" as the
actual program is named, should have been supplied long ago
as another one of those cryptic but standard Unix tools.
