Unfortunately, the existing 'udp' function cannot do that. It can handle
only Lisp data.

You could make your own custom function, e.g. with inline-C using 'gcc'

   (load "@lib/gcc.l")

   (gcc "net" NIL 'rawUdp)

   any rawUdp(any ex) {
      byte buf[UDPMAX];

      fill 'buf' with bytes
      sd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0)
      sendto(sd, buf, ...)

but this is rather tedious, manipulating the buffer and byte data.

I don't know any really easy way at the moment. How about writing raw
bytes to a pipe or temp file, and using an external tool like 'nc' to
actually transfer the data?
