Hello Mathematica Users, >From what I understand Mathematica does not currently offer "seamless" support for the message passing paradigm in its parallel offerings (I mean apart from Link* primitives, however even then send/receive- like primitives should be programmed by the user). Is there some package supplying convenient message passing API atop MathLink protocol? (start a "cluster" of workers each given its ID, send/receive primitives, perhaps collective operations (gather/ scatter)... In some occasions the virtual shared memory paradigm currently offered in Mathematica is not convenient when porting parallel algorithms laid down in e.g. MPI. Thanks, Giorgos
