Glish
Jump to user comments
Glish is an interpretive language for building loosely-coupled
distributed systems from modular, event-oriented programs.
Written by Vern Paxson vern@ee.lbl.gov. These programs are
written in conventional languages such as C, C++, or Fortran.
Glish scripts can create local and remote processes and
control their communication. Glish also provides a full,
array-oriented programming language (similar to S) for
manipulating binary data sent between the processes. In
general Glish uses a centralised communication model where
interprocess communication passes through the Glish
interpreter, allowing dynamic modification and rerouting of
data values, but Glish also supports point-to-point links
between processes when necessary for high performance.
Version 2.4.1 includes an interpreter, C++ class library
and user manual. It requires C++ and there are ports to
SunOS, Ultrix, an HP/UX (rusty).
