 The following announcement is about DIPC (Distributed IPC) 1.1c. It has 
already been ported to Linux/i386 and Linux/m68k. Please contact me at 
karimi at cs.uregina.ca if you want to volunteer for porting it to PowerPC 

 This is to announce that version 1.1c of DIPC (Distributed Inter-Process
Communication) for Linux is available now. It patches 2.2.8/2.3.0 kernels.

 DIPC can be used to build and program clusters (multi-computers), and provides
distributed program developers with semaphores, messages and transparent 
distributed shared memory.

 The file dipc-1.1c.tgz, containing the complete source code and documents, 
can be obtained by anomymous FTP from wallybox.cei.net, in directory

 Alternatively, it can be downloaded from sunsite.unc.edu, in /incoming/Linux, 
or in /pub/Linux/system/network/distrib.

DIPC's web pages are at http://wallybox.cei.net/dipc

 Here is DIPC's LSM file contents:

Title:		DIPC (Distributed Inter-Process Communication)
Version:	1.1c
Entered-date:	14MAY99
Description:	DIPC enables you to build and program distributed 
                (multi-computer) systems very easily. It works by 
                making System V IPC mechanisms (shared memories, 
                semaphores and messages) network transparent.
Keywords:	distributed parallel programming multi computer cluster
