I tried compiling pfinger and it wouldn't work. Gave up...
Just tried it and realised that finger on this machine was running on
port 1079. I changed the code to reflect the IP port chnage and it

Reading through the pfinger source, the simple I/O of inet will suffice
for this working concept.

Considering it have been 12 years since I did any pascal programming,
I'm finding it straight forward, if a little wobbly
