The PVM++ library provides an easy way to program the widely used parallel programming library PVM, which works in homogenous and heterogenous network environments.

Release Notes: This release is the first to work with gcc-3.0. It still works with gcc-2.95, but might not work with very old versions of gcc any more. Instead of prepending every symbol of this library with "Pvm", this release uses the namespace Pvm. For example, PvmHost now becomes Pvm::Host. This is binary and source code incompatible with old versions of PVM++. There is, however, a script named "convert_to_namespace", which does a very good job at converting a program to work with the new version of PVM++. This script can be found in the top directory of the distribution tarball. This release uses libtool 1.4.
Release Notes: Proper packing/unpacking of STL types, PvmStruct, and PvmCustom, code cleanups, an update to LGPL 2.1, and a new regression test suite with 1 test so far. You can run the test by typing make check .
