PVM Applications development

Running PVM applications

Writing PVM applications

Application programs view PVM as a general and flexible parallel computing resource that supports a message-passing model of computation. This resource may be accessed at three different levels:

Error Handling

In Fortran status is passed back in a parameter.

Debugging PVM applications

A task run by hand can be started under a serial debugger. This is achieved by adding PVMDEBUG to pvmfspawn arguments. Use the following procedure when debugging.

The debugger script

PVM tasks that are spawned can also be started under a debugger.
