This package contains the library
Netowrk.Ports for distributed programming with ports. In contrast to similar concepts in other languages, this library allows sending logic variables over ports which can be used as back channels.
The ideas behind this library are described in:
Michael Hanus: Distributed Programming in a Multi-Paradigm Declarative Language In Proc. PPDP'99, Springer LNCS 1702, pp. 188-205, 1999
examples directory contains some examples for using this library.
If the environment variable
TRACEPORTS is set to
yes, some information about the port communication is traced on stderr.
