Struggling to find how you would install an updated version of netcat on MacOS that would support this command. The problem is that on some platforms the `nc` command doesn't close the channel when `echo` terminates, which prevents the pipeline command from terminating.
Would a suitable solution be to include both options with one of them commented out and a comments saying `# MacOS` and `# Linux`?
# Uncomment the appropriate command for your operating system
# echo $message | nc -N $TARGET_HOSTNAME 4321
# echo $message | nc $TARGET_HOSTNAME 4321
