One more that I forgot, along the lines of nc, tcpclient, etc.:

zsh's ztcp module

On my OS the zsh executable is actually smaller than the bash executable, which piques my curiousity. The size differences between the two packages might be largely attributable to all the zsh modules and other zsh 'extras'.

I've tried bash's tcp functionality a few times, but never got hooked. Perhaps because it did not feel robust, or perhaps because there are so many other more 'reliable' tools. But maybe ztcp is worth a look.
