1) Make the listening application buffer the incoming bytes, then process them all when it sees a newline. Bear in mind that you would need to treat some characters/character sequences (such as backspace) specially.
2) Use netcat. I _really_ recommend this. see http://www.atstake.com/research/tools/network_utilities/ and http://netcat.sourceforge.net/ .
