You have to capture that when the user logs on.

what is EOF?
It's a way of putting data to be used as stdin inline.

command <<tag

I personally use EOF as the tag.

It would seem so! I often redirect the output from rsh, so am surprised you can't do the input. You will have to do it as an argument.

rsh host "all those things I want to do"

By the way, what are you rsh'ing to and as who?

a binary file in the remote computers /h/test/bin directory.

this is how i would do it manually
from my local machine i open a terminal and type the following

telnet test004
user: joe
pass: xxx

once in i cd /h/test/bin
the i type setenv DISPLAY:0.0
once done i do ./Msg "hi"

then it will show a dialog box on that remote machines screen saying hi with an ok button to close it.

what i want to do is what it typed above but to multiple computers at once using that Msg program
