What's Remote-DCL

Remote-DCL is a Ruby script to execute a script at a remote server. DCL calles in the script creates PNG images at the remote, and send them to local and then display the images. It avoids X connection between the local and the remote, so could reduce execution time.


Install / Download


You can install with rubygems
# gem install remote-dcl


You can get from the git repository

% git clone http://ruby.gfd-dennou.org/products/remote-dcl/remote-dcl.git
or the repository snapshot, remote-dcl-snapshot.tar.gz.



At remote server

If you do not use xvfb-run command, you should lounch Xvfb server before execution of remote-dcl.
 % Xvfb :99 -screen 0 640x480x8 -nolisten tcp

Note: xvfb-run command lounch Xvfb server internally, and the lounching is occuer at every execution of remote-dcl.
It takes some seconds, so lounching Xvfb server by your self reduces execution time of remote-dcl.

At local

 % remote-dcl [--display=] [--dir=] [--user] [--password] [--remote] server_name host_name [args]
