Programming Environments for Massively Parallel Distributed Systems
This paper discusses an experiment to compare the usability of two parallel programming systems (PPS). In this experiment, half of the students in a graduate parallel and distributed computing course solved a problem using the Enterprise PPS while the other half solved the same problem using a PVM-like library of message-passing routines. The feedback from such experiments is necessary to help narrow the gap between what parallel programmers want, and what current PPSs provide.doi:10.1007/978-3-0348-8534-8_19 fatcat:ho5452ze3zhg7bszewbwbsfeyy
