Up until this release, the 'buffer' command was included.

I use this all the time.  Things like:

 nc -l 12345 | buffer -z256k -p75 -m10m -o /dev/sda

Gone? :(

Is there an alternative?


"Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, the market, the street, the
office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front
rank of some great battle, and we knew that victory for mankind depended upon
our bravery, strength, and skill.  When we do that the humblest of us will be
serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world."
 --Theodore Parker

She loves it -- and that's all.  It is thus that we should love.
