Nyancat CLI

Nyancat rendered in your terminal.



First build the C application:

make && cd src

You can run the C application standalone.


To use the telnet server, you need to add a configuration that runs:

nyancat -t

... to either an inetd or xinetd server. I am using openbsd-inetd, which you must give both arguments (nyancat and -t) to, which I found odd.
