       coop-computing-tools  -  share  resources  in  a  heterogeneous,  and unreliable computing


       The Cooperative Computing Tools (cctools) are a collection of programs designed to  assist
       users  with  the  difficulties  of  building and managing complex, fault-prone distributed
       systems. These components are:

       Parrot - A personal virtual file system.

       Chirp - A distributed file and storage system.

       Makeflow - A workflow engine similar to Make.

       Work Queue - A flexible master-worker library.

       All-Pairs - A computational abstraction.

       Wavefront - A computational abstraction.

       Watchdog - A reliable process manager.

       ftsh - A fault tolerant shell language.

       FTP-Lite - A light weight FTP client library.
