Does debian have  'socat' by chance ?

# socat stdio unix-connect:/var/lib/xend/xend-socket 
GET /

HTTP/1.1 500 Internal server error
Content-length: 0
Expires: -1
Content-type: application/sxp
Pragma: no-cache
Cache-control: no-cache

If so, we could install a 'nc' shell script which called to socat to 
emulate it on Debian ?
