HOSTSEARCH(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		 HOSTSEARCH(1)

NAME
     hostsearch	-- query several hosts for installed Debian packages

SYNOPSIS
     hostsearch	[-f hostsfile] pkgname...
     hostsearch	[-hV]

DESCRIPTION
     The hostsearch utility connects to	several	hosts using SSH	and checks if
     the specified Debian packages are installed.

     Options:

     -f	     Specify the file containing the list of hosts to query (default:
	     int.hoster.bg.z).

     -h	     Display program usage information and exit.

     -V	     Display program version information and exit.

RETURN VALUES
     The hostsearch utility exits 0 on success,	and >0 if an error occurs.

ENVIRONMENT
     The hostsearch utility's operation	is currently not directly affected by
     its environment.

FILES
     The hostsearch utility reads the hosts list file (either int.hoster.bg.z
     or	the one	specified as an	argument to the	-f command-line	option)	to de-
     termine the list of hosts to connect to.  This should be a	plain text
     file containing one hostname per row.

EXAMPLES
     Connect to	the hosts listed in the	int.hoster.bg.z	file and list those
     that have curl installed:

	   hostsearch curl

     Specify a different host list file	and check for more packages:

	   hostsearch -f ringlet.z apt-listchanges sysgather
