dnc: demo version of nc(1)
dnc is a very simple version of the venerable nc(1) that's intended for demo purposes by explaining precisely what it's doing and giving users a little more control about how it operates.
Listen for TCP connections on port 8080 on all local IP addresses:
# dnc -l -p 8080
Establish a TCP connection to a server listening on 127.0.0.1 port 8080:
# dnc 127.0.0.1 8080
- basic server
- basic client
- allow setting TCP keep-alive options
- allow setting listen backlog
- allow disabling poll(2) -- need a REPL?
