Basic error recovery problems between interacting processes are first discussed and the desirability of having separate recovery mechanisms for cooperation and competition is demonstrated. The paper then concentrates on recovery mechanisms for processes competing for the use of the shared resources of a computer system. Appropriate programming language features are developed based on the class and inner features of SIMULA, and on the structuring concepts of recovery blocks and monitors.
