Transports data over the Internet

'netrw' is a simple (but powerful) tool for transporting data over the Internet. Its simplifies and speeds up file transfers to hosts without an FTP server. It can also be used for uploading data to another user. It is something like one-way netcat (nc) with some nice features concerning data transfers. It computes and checks message digests (MD5, SHA-1, and some others) of the data being transferred, and prints information on progress and average speed. At the end, it sums up the transfer.
