PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) is a software package which permits a
heterogeneous collection computers connected by a network to be used
as a single large parallel computer.
The S-Lang PVM module provides a S-Lang interface to PVM. By
organizing distributed computations with S-Lang, one gains the
advantages of programming in an interpreted language.
With this approach, one can make efficient use of all available
computer resources: high level logic is handled in interpreted code,
CPU intensive work is done in compiled code and PVM simplifies using
all available CPUs.
