NAME

       cap — cap is an utlity to invoke capistrano tasks.

SYNOPSIS

       cap <command> [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Capistrano  is  a  utility  and  framework  for executing commands in parallel on multiple
       remote  machines,  via  SSH.  It  uses  a  simple  DSL  (borrowed  in  part   from   Rake,
       http://rake.rubyforge.org/)  that  allows  you  to define _tasks_, which may be applied to
       machines in certain roles. It also supports tunneling connections via some gateway machine
       to allow operations to be performed behind VPN's and firewalls.

       Capistrano was originally designed to simplify and automate deployment of web applications
       to distributed environments, and originally came bundled with a set of tasks designed  for
       deploying  Rails  applications. The deployment tasks are now (as of Capistrano 2.0) opt-in
       and require clients to explicitly put "load 'deploy'" in their recipes.

       Capistrano is  a  self-documenting program by giving you an  extensive  help  listing  for
       each command. If you think that this manual page is outdated, simply running

       cap -h

ASSUMPTIONS

       Capistrano  is "opinionated software", which means it has very firm ideas about how things
       ought to be done, and tries to force those ideas on you. Some of  the  assumptions  behind
       these opinions are:

         * You are using SSH to access the remote servers.
         *  You  either have the same password to all target machines, or you have public keys in
       place to allow passwordless access to them.

       Do not expect these assumptions to change.

OPTIONS

       Capistrano  is extensible configurable, and it has the following configuration options:

       -e           --explain TAKS
                 Displays help (if available) for the task.

       -F           --default-config
