       LAM - introduction to Local Area Multicomputer (LAM)


       LAM  is  an  MPI  programming  environment  and  development  system for a message-passing
       parallel machine constituted with heterogeneous UNIX computers on a network.  With LAM,  a
       dedicated  cluster or an existing network computing infrastructure can act as one parallel
       computer solving one  compute-intensive  problem.   LAM  emphasizes  productivity  in  the
       application  development  cycle  with extensive control and monitoring functionality.  The
       user can easily debug the common errors in parallel programming and is  well  equipped  to
       diagnose more difficult problems.

       LAM  features  a full implementation of the MPI communication standard, with the exception
       that the MPI_CANCEL function will not properly cancel messages that have been sent.

   User Information
       Users are strongly encouraged to read the LAM/MPI User's Guide that is included  with  the
       LAM/MPI  distribution,  and  is  provided  on  the  main LAM/MPI web site (http://www.lam-

   Up-to-Date Information
       The LAM home page can be found on the World  Wide  Web  at:   It
       should  be  consulted  for  the  most  current  information about LAM, as well as updates,
       patches, etc.
