The DSTM package

[Tags: lgpl, library, program]

The DSTM package consists of the DSTM library, a name server application, and three sample distributed programs using the library. DSTM is a framework enabling the use of the STM interface, known from concurrent programming, to be used for distributed Haskell applications as well. Provided are a simple Dining Philosophers, a Chat, and a soft real-time Bomberman game application.

Distributed communication is transparent to the application programmer. The application designer uses a very simple nameserver mechanism to set up the system. The DSTM library includes the management of unavailable process nodes and provides the application with abstract error information thus facilitating the implementation of robust distributed application programs.

For usage please look into the included file: DSTMManual.pdf, also available at http://www.informatik.uni-kiel.de/prog/mitarbeiter/frank-kupke/.

Readme for DSTM-0.1.2

The Cabal library package
=========================

Installation instructions for the DSTM library
===============================================

Installing as a user (no root or administer access)
---------------------------------------------------

    ghc --make Setup
    ./Setup configure --user
    ./Setup build
    ./Setup install

Note the use of the `--user` flag at the configure step.

Compiling Setup rather than using `runghc Setup` is much faster and works on
Windows. For all packages other than Cabal itself it is fine to use `runghc`.

This will install into `$HOME/.cabal/` on unix and into
`$Documents and Settings\$User\Application Data\cabal\` on Windows
If you want to install elsewhere use the `--prefix=` flag at the
configure step.


Installing as root / Administrator
----------------------------------

    ghc --make Setup
    ./Setup configure
    ./Setup build
    sudo ./Setup install

Compiling Setup rather than using `runghc Setup` is much faster and works on
Windows. For all packages other than Cabal itself it is fine to use `runghc`.

This will install into `/usr/local` on unix and on Windows it will
install into `$ProgramFiles/Haskell`. If you want to install
elsewhere use the `--prefix=` flag at the configure step.
