Why is this in my program i randomly get garbage sent instead of what i know the client is sending the server (prints it out client side...) but it comes as about 3 screens full of garbage.  

Thanks for any help if you want the source give me your email, (its my sad attempt at a mud server)

client is not using memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memmove,  memset  -

I think that the buffer of send() is not end with '\0' character. if you copy the buffer to an other buf and the and of the buf is '\0'. I'sure the it is well for you
