Parses the /etc/ghosts file for matching hosts. The first word of each line is the ``hostname'', and each other word on the line represents that host's membership in a given group. In the example below, there are two machines (``bilbo'', ``baggins'') in the ``prod'' group, one (``tolkien'') in the ``e450'' group, etc:
# Macros sunprod=solaris-e450 # Machines # # Name Group Hardware OS bilbo prod intel linux baggins prod e4500 solaris tolkien devel e450 solaris
Machine groups can be combined logically with the ``+'' and ``-'' characters to produce composite groups. For example:
$ ghosts intel+e450 bilbo tolkien $ ghosts prod-intel baggins
gsh(1) command can be used to run remote SSH connections to hosts.
