srtools is a set of simple remote tools. the main two to mention:
simple rdist distributes files or commands across hosts. srdist(1) understands rcs(1) files and host based files. there are several other tools see README.
rcs tools has a few things , like "late-checkins" to check for files that one forgot to check in an dorev to force check in / do easy check in (avoiding complicated options).
host based files is a way to allow hosts to distribute all files without clobbering host specific files. and with that ...
srtools(1) makes partially synchronizng hosts easy. Also can be a far easier way to do incremental or nightly backups. Also an easy way to have multiple hosts interact.
README is visible on file download page
EXAMPLE: $rcssrdist file
(file was broadcased to default hosts list that are up. if a rcs pair existed it was taken care of. existence of directory on other hosts was checked (common mistakes checked)
- broadcast files or dirs to all hosts in a simpler manner , easy srcmd too
- late-checkins dorev rcs_rev_cmp make RCS way easier than CVS
- intersection complement union are indespensible for unix text lists
- more , see files download page
