Using Prog

Is there a simple what to pass the host name to a 'prog:' line?

Looking to have a series of servers that all run certain Unix scripts, and don't wish to continually have to type in something like

prog :
command : hostname

Therefore is it possible to do something like

{ command : %HOST
where %HOST passes in the host name variable for the server's entry.

This what I can easily add in more servers, and only have to change the server's name in one location, not several.

thanks Joe.
