 telnet is not very good at reading input from a pipe, it will usually
 close the connection as soon as the pipe is closed, not waiting for

 the example above with nc(1) is probably better, but if you do not have
 nc(1) on your system you can try this hack:

 (echo "purge.url test.html" ; sleep 2 ) | telnet localhost 8787
