    1: # As our unix printer setup is weird and I sometimes want to
    2: # print to networked (HP) printers, I needed something like
    3: # netcat. I was unsatisfied with <tt>telnet</tt>, as it did
    4: # output stuff I didn't want, and I didn't want to add the
    5: # redirection to /dev/null. Perl to the rescue:
    7: use strict;
    8: use IO::Socket;
    10: select IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => shift, PeerPort => (shift || 23));
    11: print
    12:   for <>;
    14: __END__
    15: # or, as a oneliner:
    16: perl -MIO::Socket -pe 'BEGIN{select IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr=>shift,PeerPort =>(shift||23))}'
