[ee122] ambiguous output

The specs claim:
Echo the line of input to both the client, and standard output.
• For valid requests, print to standard output the components of the request
(these should appear after
the line of input).
• For invalid requests, print an error message on standard output indicating
which token is missing or
I interpreted this to mean:
Print to standard output __of the server__ the components of the request
Print to standard output __of the server__ an error message indicating which
token is missing or illformed
Is it like this, or are the components to be sent in a string to the client
side, and printed there?
The specs were not clear about this and on a straightforward reading, I
would say that this points towards the server doing the work, since this
stuff appears in the server section and there is no mention of sending the
component string to the client first (which would be necessary in order to
print the components there). Which way is it?
