This is a nice little utility.  I downloaded it, and added a tight loop in
the CL program to help me do some stress testing of a web site.  For those
who haven't looked at this utility, it runs an RPG program that opens a
socket connection to a web server, sends an HTTP request, reads the HTTP
response, then either displays or logs it.  The web server can be on the
same AS/400 or any other computer you can access via TCP/IP.  The RPG source
is useful for learning how to write socket client programs;  learning to
write socket servers is not much harder.

It was interesting to see the HTTP headers included in the response file.  A
nice way to learn HTTP.  You don't get that when you view the page source
from Internet Explorer.

I'm curious to hear about the results of hitting a CGI program repeatedly.
