==== Description: ====
The main purpose of the program `pexec` is to execute the given command or
shell script (e.g. parsed by `/bin/sh`) in parallel on the local host or on
remote hosts, while some of the execution parameters, namely the redirected
standard input, output or error and environmental variables can be varied.
This program is therefore capable to replace the classic shell loop iterators
(e.g. `for ~ in ~ done`, in `bash`) by executing the body of the loop in
parallel. Thus, the program `pexec` implements shell level data parallelism in
a barely simple form. The capabilities of the program is extended with
additional features, such as allowing to define mutual exclusions, do atomic
command executions and implement higher level resource and job control.

==== Other Software Required: ====
glibc     LGPL

==== Other Comments: ====
The program `pexec` has been completed the GNU evaluation process and has
been approved as a GNU package (as of Nov 10, 2008).
