Hmm, sorry.  Well, basically it copies a file from the local machine to
numerous remote machines, basically I use it occassionally for script
distribution, but more than anything, I did it just to learn the
language.  There are a few "preset" values (i.e. SUN, AIX), used like so

$ rcopy.py -p OTHER /this/dir/and/file /other/dir
Enter hosts: foo bar
Sending /this/dir/and/file to foo /other/dir
Sending /this/dir/and/file to bar /other/dir

The Unix way
$ for host in foo bar:
> do
> rcp $file ${host}:${dir}
> done

As you can see, a dumb program, but again...just using it to learn.
