Hi,
You might want to elaborate the following paragraph in the "Command
execution" section a bit more. It isn't easily comprehended on the first
read. May be statement reordering is needed(?).

The --exec option (alias -e) takes as an argument the full pathname of the
command to be executed, along with any arguments. Apart from argument
splitting, the command is not interpreted, only executed with exec.
--sh-exec (-c) is the same, except that it executes the command by passing
it to */bin/sh -c*. That means that it's not necessary to use the full
pathname of the command if it lies in the PATH, environment variable
references are expanded, and any other shell interpretation is done.

Reading the rest of the document...

Hello everyone,

I have finished a first draft of the Ncat Users' Guide, which aims to be
complete documentation for Ncat.

http://nmap.org/ncat/guide/index.html

What do you think? Here are specific questions I'd like you to answer,
if you will. You don't have to answer all of them.

Do you prefer the documentation to start with an example, or with a
high-level survey of options?

Are options given coverage proportional to their importance? Any that
should have more or less description?

Is the ordering of sections logical? How would you reorder them?

Are there any inaccuracies or typos? Any examples that need more
explanation?

Which section would you remove if you had to remove one?

Are there any obvious uses of Ncat that aren't covered?

David Fifield
