Execute commands or shell scripts in parallel on a local or remote host

The main purpose of the program pexec is to execute the given command or shell script (e.g. parsed by /bin/sh) in parallel on the local host or on remote hosts. This program is therefore capable to replace the classic shell loop iterators (e.g. for ~ in ~ done, in bash) by executing the body of the loop in parallel.
