/* This is the client program. It creates a Socket object to establish 
the connection with the server program. It then creates its input and
output streams using the Socket. It reads lines from standard input,
writes them to the server program, reads the reply from the server,
and writes that to standard output.  The client exits when it detects
end of file on either the Socket input stream or on the standard
input stream.
Host and port number are passed as command line arguments.
