If the data you're sending is a symbol instead of numbers, the symbol
will be interpreted as a file name, so [client 1 hello.jpg( will send
hello.jpg as raw bytes. The other end will just receive the raw bytes,
so it would need to know what to do with it. I made a pair of [httpreq]
and [httpreceive] objects that will work together with [tcpserver] and
[tcpclient] to simplify http requests and reception on (usually) port
80. I still need to make a [packhttp] object that will send stuff with
the proper header.
