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
