comment nc command's -k option
Please provide the full output from running nc -h. I suspect you're running busybox nc, which doesn't support -k. Regular nc has supported the -k option since at least 2001 source.

Looks like bold isn't working? What terminal are you using? Have you have any changes to the settings that might be related?

comment execute a command in $PATH matching a wildcard
The second form isn't limited to fixed strings, but having to specify the substring to compgen then the pattern to case isn't ideal.
