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.
