Do not create any more tickets on this subject. You should have appended a comment to ticket #987 explaining your new discovery of why the TCP functions don't work. Instead you did the excessively obnoxious thing of creating a new ticket within two minutes of posting your last one.

As for this request, we'll think about it.

Please accept my apology for the two tickets. I had seen it as two different request. The first was for a complete telnet client. Where the second request was for more control over the TCP function which, as I understand it, would be required to implement a telnet client.

As I believe there is other reasons to want to send TCP with the URGENT bit other then for Telnet, that is why I felt it was a different request.

Again, please accept my apology. I will try to be more careful in the future with my requests.

From what I've read, no, there's really not. Telnet seems to be the only useful program that uses the bit. Everything else suggests against the use and offers alternatives. So on the one hand it's something people have suggested should not be used but on the other there is a single legitimate use for it. For the time being I'm leaving this ticket open until I have a chance to review the socket functions and look at adding additional functionality. This will be awhile because I have a number of other things to wrap up before I will have an opportunity to do this.
