Sock -- A Simple Shell Interface to Network Sockets

This program serves as an interface for network sockets for use in both
shell scripts and manually from the command line. In contrast to
netcat, it handles EOF in a way so, for example, tar archives can
easily be transferred. See the man page (man 1 sock) for more details.


host1 # sock -l :7777 > file
host2 # cat file | sock host1:7777

host1 # sock -l :7777 | tar xvzfp - 
host2 # tar czfp - some/dir | sock host1:7777
