CRL version 1.0

These pages contain information about version 1.0 of the C Region Library (CRL), an all-software distributed shared memory system intended for use on message-passing multicomputers and distributed systems. CRL 1.0 can be compiled for use on the MIT Alewife Machine, Thinking Machine's CM-5, and networks of Sun workstations (running SunOS 4.1.3) communicating with one another using TCP.

The TCP/UNIX implementation included in CRL 1.0 is not intended to be a high-performance distributed shared memory implementation delivering speedups similar to those obtained with the Alewife and the CM-5 implementations. It is primarily provided to allow development and experimentation by those without access to a CM-5 and to display the ease with which CRL may be ported.
