socat is a relay for bidirectional data transfer between two
independent data channels. Each of these data channels may be a file,
pipe, device (serial line etc. or a pseudo terminal), a socket (UNIX,
IP4, IP6 - raw, UDP, TCP), an SSL socket, proxy CONNECT connection,
a file descriptor (stdin etc.), the GNU line editor (readline),
a program, or a combination of two of these.  These modes include
generation of "listening" sockets, named pipes, and pseudo terminals.
