DIPC allows an application programmer to easily (transparently) send and receive data, synchronise using semaphores, and use a shared memory over a network. Distributed computing is thus made very easy. DIPC modifies System V's message queues, semaphores, and shared memory segments so that they can operate not just within a single computer, but over a cluster of computers. The programming model is very similar to that of a group of processes running on the same computer and exchanging data.
