CPPvm allows processes to pass C++ objects to each other. The processes can run on a heterogeneous collection of UNIX or Windows computers hooked together by a network to be used as a single large parallel computer. CPPvm is based on the "Parallel Virtual Machine" (PVM) software.
What is new in version 1.5.0?
The new version mainly concentrates on reliability: it contains some bugfixes and adaptations to compilers, operating systems and older PVM versions. A new feature is that notifications can be requested and received with different objects; this makes notification handling easier in large programs.
