Netcat, or "nc" as the actual program is named, is a simple 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 was written by *Hobbit* <>, and is a product
of Avian Research.
