Replacement for Telnet on macOS High Sierra

I was used to flushing memcached by connecting with telnet and issuing the flush_all command. Today I found that the telnet command has been removed from macOS High Sierra. Netcat works just as well for sending text over a TCP connection and is available on High Sierra.
