What can your tool do that Ncat (http://nmap.org/ncat/guide/index.html)

You seem to be implying that you released scnc 1.00 in April 2008 and
then we copied it a month later with our Ncat. But the svn log you
referenced was just us moving Ncat between code repositories. Chris
Gibson and I wrote Ncat years earlier. Our first public release
(which did include SSL support) was in 2005:
Our Ncat certainly wasn't the first reimplementation of Netcat, and it
wasn't even the first to support SSL. It was just the first to have
all of the features *I* wanted--proxy support (client or server), SSL,
IPv6, connection redirection, connection brokering, portability
(Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.), and more. See http://nmap.org/ncat/.
Considering this timeline, pardon me if I fix bugs found in my
softwares, even when some other tools give the same features.
I think you write some great tools and produce interesting research.
So if you want to write and maintain a Perl implementation of Netcat,
more power to you! I'm only sending this email to correct the
