Test Server in Processing

This is a test server. I use it any time I have a client that needs to connect to a web server or chat server, and I want to see what the client is sending, byte for byte. You can modify it to send and receive whatever you need.

/* 
 server_test
 
 Creates a server that listens for clients and prints what they say. 
 It also sends the last client anything that's  typed on the keyboard.
