TIL: #bash provides pseudo devices for TCP and UDP connections:
echo "hello" > /dev/udp/127.0.0.1/1337
exec 5<>/dev/tcp/www.google.com/80echo -e "GET / HTTP/1.0\n" >&5cat <&5
I'm baffled how I've never discovered that until today.
@fribbledomI've known about it, but it's like knowing what's in the Necronomicon, it's powerful, but nothing good will come from it.
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you.
