I need to be able to run a comand on many computers (1000ish) in order to get information from them. currently im using a tcsh script that runs an ssh command for each box, but that takes age's and stops if one of the machines is broken.
i'm trying to write a c program that forks of lots of child processes to complete the task quckly.
i cant get it to work with system calls, is there a way to do ssh from within a c program without a system call?
thanks for any help.
