Using PVM at UCL

To use it you need first to have access to PVM. Before using UC++ it is a good idea to get some experience of PVM and XPVM, and the use of the PVM console. At present use of UC++ requires a little knowledge of PVM.

The PVM binary is located at

/cs/research/coside/fsfb/croissant/coside/pvm3/lib/SUN4/pvm

and you need also to set the environment variable

PVM_ROOT=/cs/research/coside/fsfb/croissant/coside/pvm3

Documentation and example programs for PVM can be found under PVM_ROOT.
