2.5 Systems libraries


2.5.1 Systems Library Facilities for Parallel Processing

The europa definition contains a further library definition which defines and standardizes the systems library facilities required for parallel processing models. These libraries define sets of library calls which applications programmers can reasonably expect to be supplied with a particular implementation of the europa system.

2.5.2 Behaviour of Systems Libraries

Some of these library functions are common to all platforms, while some could be specific to individual platforms. The behaviour of the libraries will exhibit the same behaviour in any model independent of the architecture upon which the model is being implemented. Systems libraries include the standard ansi/iso libraries.

2.5.3 Systems Libraries Tools

Systems libraries will provide tools which encapsulate details and knowledge of the architecture of a resource; and which can make this information available to the proxy system.
