[gopher] Re: Final dot required on server request?
that's really odd. nearly every gopher server i've connected to stays with
the RFC, which indicates the terminating dot is required.
however, gopher is a connectionless protocol. you connect, the server sends
and disconnects. so i suppose technically, you don't need the ending period,
you just need to read the socket until the connection closes.
