hrbrmstr/varmint: Retrieve Content from and Interact with 'Gopher' Servers

The 'Gopher' protocol is a 'TCP/IP' application layer protocol designed for distributing, searching, and retrieving documents over the Internet. The 'Gopher' protocol was strongly oriented towards a menu-document design and presented an alternative to the World Wide Web in its early stages, but ultimately 'Hypertext Transfer Protocol' ('HTTP') became the dominant protocol. The 'Gopher' ecosystem is often regarded as the effective predecessor of the 'World Wide Web'. Tools are provided to interact with and retrieve content from 'Gopher' servers.
