PCN System

host-control


The host-control program is used by the sr_bsdipc module (parallel
emulator using BSD Unix IPC -- TCP sockets).  When used in conjunction
with the -start-nodes flag of the PCN emulator, it provides a flexible
way to start up PCN on a network of machines, including on networks in
which rsh does not work.

The host-control and node-control programs are actually Perl scripts,
so you must have Perl installed on your system to use it.  Perl is
free software that can be obtained in source form from the standard
network archive sites (like prep.ai.mit.edu).

To install this program into the PCN bin directory specified in the
top level Makefile, after running 'make config' in the top level PCN
source directory, then run:

	./install_hc

This will install the host-control and node-control programs into the
bin installation directory, and some subsidiary Perl scripts into the
lib installation directory.


NOTE: If you try running host-control and it gives the error:

host-control: perl source 'errno.ph' not found

Then perl on your system is probably not completely installed -- the
perl header files have not been generated.  (This seems to be a fairly
common problem...)  To finish the perl installation, have your
systems administrator run:

	cd /usr/include; h2ph *.h sys/*.h

This will generate all of the perl header files from your system's
header files.
