What languages does PVM work with?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

PVM is independent of any particular language (it is written in C). Programs can be written in one or more languages. Libraries for C, C++ and Fortran are provided with the distribution. A PVM code can be ported heterogeneously to run cooperatively across any set of different architectures with different languages at the same time.
