  Description     : make a customized traffic over network

Network program written by William Richard Stevens and used in exemples in his
book called "TCP/IP Illustrated - Volume I".

It can be used both as a client and as a server and can send both TCP and UDP
packets. It works in 4 modes:

    - client: establishes a tcp connection to server's echo service.
    - server: runs a service on local socket (IP:Port). The server will copy data
	      received from the client to STDOUT and copy data input from STDIN to
	      the client.
    - source client: writes "x" buffers of "y" bytes of data to the discard
             service on server.
    - source server: discards any data received on a especific port.
