Distributed GEANT

This is set of scripts written in TCL and Expect to automate parallel processing of GEANT jobs over a computer network. It will take a job that you are ready to run on one machine, and with only a little bit of extra work on your part, split it up and run it on as many hosts as you would like. TCL/Expect as well as SSH are required.
