(synopsis "Read and write data over TCP/IP")
"Netcat is a featured networking utility which reads and writes data
across network connections, using the TCP/IP 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.")
