This type of thing is perfect for scp. Especially if you have keys between trusted hosts so that you do not need to enter a password (or put it in a file in the clear):

for host in host1 host2 host3 host4 do scp $host:/etc/vx/elm/*.lic /home/user/admin/keys done

scp most certainly supports globbing. It can also recursively copy a directory and keep the same ownership/file permissions of files and a bunch of other great things.

The other alternative is to set up a generic Perl script that you can pass command line parameters to:

  • Local directory
  • Remote directory
  • File list
  • Username/Password
  • etc

    To me, it seems easier to have the key authentication set up with scp so that I can do this on the command line on the fly. There are times when I can't because the host is not local or trusted, and have set up a script that is maleable enough that I do not have to edit it before each use.

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

    • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
      <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
    • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
    • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
