I am wondering why the package netcat6 is not part of the official repos. If the reason is that simply no TU could find the time, I understand that, but otherwise I think this reflects badly on the "latest and greatest" as well as "KISS" philosophie :-). IPv6 is the latest and greatest and netcat is a very basic requirement.
Ncat part of the nmap package has ipv6 support and so does openbsd IIRC.
Theres too many netcat implementations in official repos.
There shouldn't be any reason to learn more editor types than emacs or vi -- mg (1)
