The pdreceive man page says: "Each  message received  is  printed to the 
standard output with a trailing semicolon. The protocol used is easy to 
implement and is called FUDI." It means that if the software you want to 
communicate with doesn't directly support FUDI, feel free to implement it.

Here's a dead easy way to inspect FUDI messages with netcat:
- start netcat in listen mode on port 3000
  (in a console, type "nc -l -p 3000")
- start pd and open the netsend help patch
- click on "connect localhost 3000"
- play with the number box.
- look at the console...
