Basic Linear Algebra Comm. Subprograms - Test files for PVM

The BLACS project is an ongoing investigation whose purpose is to create a linear algebra oriented message passing interface that may be implemented efficiently and uniformly across a large range of distributed memory platforms. . You can choose between an implementation based on MPI or PVM. This package uses PVM. . There are packages for the shared libraries, for the static libraries and the development files and for test programs (this one). . Most users do not need to install this package directly because it is used as a high level driver for the communication in the ScaLAPACK packages. Therefore, it is installed when installing ScaLAPACK. ScaLAPACK is a parallel version of LAPACK and is used on Beowulf type clusters.
