Closing socket when input file ends?

Hi guys,

First: loving nmap/ncat a lot.  Thanks all.

I'm using ncat with an embedded device like so:

   nmap 50000 <query.bin >response.bin

The thing is it never seems to close the connection.  I can use --idle-timeout
to kill it but I sort of wonder why it doesn't automatically close the socket
when input EOF stdin like cat does?

Also, when typing in put manually I would expect CNTRL-D to send EOF,
but I'm not sure if it does or not, or does but it doesn't close
connection, or what.

Anyway, just kind of weird.
