Remote Sequential Execution Tool

rset(1) operates by staging files on a remote system, then executing instructions embedded in a file format known as Progressive Label Notation. Any interpreter capable of running scripts read over a pipe may be specified. The bundled utilities rinstall(1) and rsub(1) provide an easy means of installing and modifying configuration files, and capabilities are added by writing utility scripts which are sent along with configuration data.
