A shell for any *nix like OS that allows you to run commands on several hosts at once using SSH. I know, I know - You can do everything that Shocto can do using Bash, but this makes it a bit easier if you don't like remembering syntax etc. I work on so many different scripting languages, I get them all confused :P

Whats up with the name? sh + do many things at once like an octopus?

I wrote Shocto on June 3, 2005 - there is more info, docs, tutorials etc to come.
You need: * if you compile Ruby yourself, make sure you have YAML, Readline, and abbrev support turned on
