//! A chat server that broadcasts a message to all connections.
//! This is a simple line-based server which accepts connections, reads lines
//! from those connections, and broadcasts the lines to all other connected
//! clients. In a sense this is a bit of a "poor man's chat server".
//! You can test this out by running:
//! cargo run --example chat
//! And then in another window run:
//! cargo run --example connect
//! You can run the second command in multiple windows and then chat between the
//! two, seeing the messages from the other client as they're received. For all
//! connected clients they'll all join the same room and see everyone else's
//! messages.
