Porting DIPC to Aplha
The following announcement is about DIPC (Distributed IPC). It has
already been ported to Linux/i386 and Linux/m68k. Please contact me if
you want to volunteer for porting it to Alpha processors.
This is to announce that version 1.1c of DIPC (Distributed Inter-Process
Communication) for Linux is available now. It patches 2.2.8/2.3.0 kernels.
DIPC can be used to build and program clusters (multi-computers), and provides
distributed program developers with semaphores, messages and transparent
distributed shared memory.
The file dipc-1.1c.tgz, containing the complete source code and documents,
can be obtained by anomymous FTP from wallybox.cei.net, in directory
Alternatively, it can be downloaded from sunsite.unc.edu, in /incoming/Linux,
or in /pub/Linux/system/network/distrib.
DIPC's web pages are at http://wallybox.cei.net/dipc
Here is DIPC's LSM file contents:
Title: DIPC (Distributed Inter-Process Communication)
Description: DIPC enables you to build and program distributed
(multi-computer) systems very easily. It works by
making System V IPC mechanisms (shared memories,
semaphores and messages) network transparent.
Keywords: distributed parallel programming multi computer cluster
