Rsh copies its standard input to the remote command, the standard output of the remote command to its standard output, and the standard error of the remote command to its standard error. Interrupt, quit and terminate signals are propagated to the remote command; rsh normally terminates when the remote command does. The options are as follows:
If no command is specified, you will be logged in on the remote host using rlogin(1).
Shell metacharacters which are not quoted are interpreted on local machine, while quoted metacharacters are interpreted on the remote machine. For example, the command
rsh otherhost cat remotefile >> localfile
appends the remote file remotefile to the local file localfile while
rsh otherhost cat remotefile ">>" other_remotefile
appends remotefile to other_remotefile
You cannot run an interactive command (like rogue(6) or vi(1)) using rsh use rlogin(1) instead.
Stop signals stop the local rsh process only; this is arguably wrong, but currently hard to fix for reasons too complicated to explain here.
