ON(1C)									ON(1C)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     on	- execute a command remotely

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     on	[ -i ] [ -n ] [	-d ] host command [ argument ] ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The on program is used to execute commands	on another system, in an
     environment similar to that invoking the program.	All environment
     variables are passed, and the current working directory is	preserved.  To
     preserve the working directory, the working file system must be either
     already mounted on	the host or be exported	to it.	Relative path names
     will only work if they are	within the current file	system;	absolute path
     names may cause problems.

     Standard input is connected to standard input of the remote command, and
     standard output and standard error	from the remote	command	are sent to
     the corresponding files for the on	command.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -i	  Interactive mode: use	remote echoing and special character
	  processing.  This option is needed for programs that expect to be
	  talking to a terminal.  All terminal modes and window	size changes
	  are propagated.

     -n	  No Input: this option	causes the remote program to get end-of-file
	  when it reads	from standard input, instead of	passing	standard input
	  from the standard input of the on program.  For example, -n is
	  necessary when running commands in the background with job control.

     -d	  Debug	mode: print out	some messages as work is being done.
