It works for me, but there are a couple of problems. It uses a timeout
of one second, so if your connection is slow it won't do anything, and
it doesn't include the dos newlines i believe you should have in http.
A more severe problem is that it uses read without setting IFS empty
which means it will mangle initial whitespace input. All these issues
(but possibly not others) are solved here (possibly):
ztcp google.com 80
print -l -u $fd -- 'GET / HTTP/1.1'$'\015' 'Host:
www.google.com'$'\015' 'Connection: close'$'\015' $'\015'
while IFS= read -u $fd -r -e; do; :; done
ztcp -c $fd
note that gmail will insert a newline in the print line, so join that
back yourself :) Instead of the while loop you can also just write cat
> BTW, would this work with https as well?
Definitely not :).
