the other node.js example

From the home page of nodejs.org:


Here is an example of a simple TCP server which listens on port 1337 and echoes whatever you send it:

var net = require('net');

var server = net.createServer(function (socket) {
  socket.write('Echo server\r\n');
  socket.pipe(socket);
});

server.listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');


I can run this ...  but how do I sent a message that will be echoed by the server?

telnet 127.0.0.1 1337

then just type

Is there a way to keep the characters from doing this:

I mean - the server is supposed to echo what I type, which it is, but it just looks strange.
