well [netsend] will send the data over a _very_ simple protocol (FUDI),
which is just plain-text; so you could easily parse it in your homemade

if you don't care to write the server-code, you can use the "pdreceive"
application which will get the data from [netsend] and then pipe it into
your program.


PS: and i do think that it is trivial to do what you want with Gem,...
