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


.Ex -std

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 determine 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
