The 'nc' command comes installed as standard on Ubuntu and Centos machines as far as I can tell.

I would like to install it on my Gentoo box,
but eix nc gives me almost everything and Google fails because the name is two short!

(http://www.computerhope.com/unix/nc.htm)

Related question, is their a website for unix commands -> portage package in general ?

Many thanks

zeonglow, et al ...

It should be noted that > net-analyzer/nmap-6.0, with the ncat useflag enabled, also offers an 'nc' (/usr/bin/ncat) ... incase the other flavours are not enough for your network catenation needs :)

Also, if you emerge app-portage/pfl you can use 'e-file' to search for packages containing a specific file.

best ... khay
