A small test tool for TCP servers

echoping is a small program to test (approximatively) performances of a remote host by sending it requests such as HTTP requests.

In any case, be polite: don't bother the remote host with many repeated requests, especially with large size. Ask for permission if you often test hosts which aren't yours.

Current features:

   * plugins, so you can extend echoping with any protocol you like and/or use,
   * Supports IPv6 as well as IPv4,
   * Supports IDN (Unicode domain names),
   * uses the protocols echo, discard, chargen or HTTP,
   * can use cryptographic connections with HTTP,
   * uses UDP instead of TCP for the protocols which accept it (like echo),
   * can repeat the test and display various measures about it,
