CONTENTS OF THIS DIRECTORY: -------------------------- This directory contains Postscript and latex versions of the following documents which describe various aspects of the PCN language and toolkit. If the latex version of a document consists of several files, then those files are contained in a tar file. 1. pcn_prog_v2.0.ps, pcn_prog_v2.0.tar These contain the following document, which provides all the information required to develop parallel programs with the PCN programming system. This document includes both tutorial and reference material. Parallel Programming with PCN Version 2.0 Ian Foster and Steven Tuecke Technical Report ANL-91/32 Argonne National Laboratory 2. sci_prog.ps A preprint version of the following publication, which contains an overview of the Virtual Topology (VT) tools which are new to PCN version 2.0, and a few examples of their use. Productive Parallel Programming: The PCN Approach Ian Foster, Robert Olson, and Steven Tuecke Scientific Programming, Vol. 1, pp. 51-66, 1992. 3. host-control.ps, host-control.tar These contain the following document, which describes how to use a network manager program, host-control, provided to simplify use of PCN on networks. Using host-control Robert Olson Technical Memo ANL/MCS-TM-154 Argonne National Laboratory FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: ----------------------- For more information on parallel programming the reader should see: Title: "Introduction to Parallel Programming" Authors: Mani Chandy and Steve Taylor Publisher: Jones and Bartlett, 1991 ISBN: 0-86720-208-4 References to additional material on PCN programming, the PCN system, and PCN applications may be found in ``Parallel Programming with PCN''.
