*MOD-A Language for Distributed Programming
November 1980 (vol. 6 no. 6)
pp. 563-571
R.P. Cook, Department of Computer Sciences, University of Wisconsin
Distributed programming is characterized by high communications costs and the inability to use shared variables and procedures for interprocessor synchronization and communication. *MOD is a high-level language system which attempts to address these problems by creating an environment conducive to efficient and reliable network software construction. Several of the *MOD distributed programming constructs are discussed as well as an interprocessor communication methodology. Examples illustrating these concepts are drawn from the areas of network communication and distributed process synchronization.
