This talk was accompanied by a floppy, whose contents are also available as a tar file containing a collection of freely-available parallel processing support software (only some of which we authored) and a simple example program for each system/approach. The tar file includes copies of PVM3, LAM MPI, bb_threads, SHMAPERS AFAPI, a System V shared memory example, etc.
On June 1, 1997, at ISCA97 in Denver, CO, Prof. Hank Dietz gave a similar, updated, tutorial, but that full tutorial is not available online.
