What: PVM Where: http://www.nyx.net/%7Edminer/pvm/ Description: Paradigm Visual Make is a software development environment written in Tcl/Tk. It incorporates a text editor, software project (aka makefile) editor and enables you to develop and build your packages within a single program. It can start an external debugger, and execute almost any external text program, putting its output into a specialized PVM text window. It looks like a Microsoft MDI application. Requires Unix, X, Tk 4.1 or higher, and xlsfonts. Updated: 08/1998 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Andrew Guryanov)
An entirely different PVM, but one which also has a Tcl story, is Parallel Virtual Machine [L1 ]. More on this, later ...

What: Tkpvm Where: http://www.cogsci.kun.nl/tkpvm/welcome.html ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/packages-7.6/devel/tkpvm1.1.tar.gz http://www.netlib.org/pvm3/pvm3.3.11.tar.gz http://www.epm.ornl.gov/pvm/ . Description: An interface between a parallel virtual machine library and Tcl/Tk. Treats a number of machines as if they were really a single machine. Also has an enhanced capability to communicate between processes. Each process in the virtual machine communicates through a pvm-channel based send command rather than Tk's X11 based send command. Supported only on Tcl 7.6plus (or Itcl 2.1), Tk 4.2plus, and PVM 3.3.x. Tkpvm does not yet work with Tcl 8.0 or PVM3.4. Updated: 10/1998 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Jan Nijtmans)
What: Tcl and Tk shared library support (aka Plus Patches) (Nijtmans) Where: http://www.purl.org/net/nijtmans/plus.html http://jfontain.free.fr/tcl+-8.3.1-2.i386.rpm http://jfontain.free.fr/tk+-8.3.1-2.i386.rpm http://jfontain.free.fr/tcltk+-8.3.1-2.spec ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/packages-8.0/devel/ ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/packages-8.0/devel/tcl8.3.1plus.patch.gz ftp://ftp.procplace.com/pub/tcl/sorted/packages-8.0/devel/tcl8.3.1plus.tar.gz http://home.nycap.rr.com/drlabelle/freewrap.html Description: The plus-patch files for Tcl/Tk 8.x adds varying types of fixes and enhancements. At some point during development, versions fixed the event-handling of Tcl such that Tk could be loaded dynamically. Other bug fixes and enhancements (such as the ones from Trf 1.0) are also present, such as the elide patch required for tkman, dash and Img patches for Tk, fileevent patches for Windows, Cygwin-B20.1 support and more. These work on both Unix and Visual C++ on Windows. These patches are compatible with the dash and img patches and extensions as well. Patches for Tclx (code and help), Tix, and tcl plugin are included with the plus patch distribution. Note that on the ftp site, tar files containing the fully patched versions of Tcl and Tk are available, for folks wanting to use Tkpvm but unable to apply the patches themselves. These files also have the dash patch applied. The ftp site may have patches for older Tcl/Tk versions. Versions thru Tcl/Tk 8.2 are available. Note that as the core team incorporates Jan's fixes, they will disappear from future versions of the patches. Plus patch Windows users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest plus patch version. This file includes patches for itcl, itk, and iwidgets. Provides enhanced dynamic loading, ability to create stand-alone executables, additional image formats, includes tkcon (version 0.70), includes new channel functions. Currently the plus patch works with Tcl up through 8.3.1 . Updated: 10/2001 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Jan Nijtmans) mailto:[email protected]
TISAS (TIme Series Analysis Supporting system) presents a GUI for time series analysis, where data, derived statistics and fitted statistical models are expressed as objects. TkPVM is used to carry out calculations on large data sets in parallel. Data transformations can be designed by manipulating graphical objects in the GUI
