# Journey

We're given a server and port to connect to, and when we do, we're told to enter a given word. The catch is that this goes on for a really long time, so it'd take a really long time to do it by hand.

This is a script that I wrote to solve this level:

```python
#!/usr/bin/env python3

import socket

def main():

s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect(("p1.tjctf.org", 8009))
while True:
incoming = s.recv(128).decode("utf-8")
print(incoming)
outgoing = incoming.split("'")[1] + "\n"
print(outgoing)
s.send(outgoing.encode())

if __name__ == "__main__":
main()
```
