Abstract

MacELIS is a workbench for experimental distributed parallel list processing under development at NTT ECL (Electrical Communications Laboratories). It provides a coherent processor abstraction mechanism by a Pseudo Network Model. In this model, the shared-memory in MacELIS appears as a network medium and the same network access methods can be used for inter-processor communication between any processors independently of location and network hardware. This paper describes the design of the MacELIS network system. It concentrates on the three topics: in-core pseudo network, implementation in object oriented programming, and data transparency on the network.
