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)
