The Caml Hump: SCAMPI


Scampi (Simple CAml to MPI interface) is small library allowing Caml programs to make calls to MPI-1 communication routines. For now only a few calls are provided (basically, getting communicator size, rank and making synchronous and asynchronous send/receive of polymorphic data plus a couple of collective comm), but it is expected that subsequent versions will enlarge the set of provided bindings. This first version, however, effectivily allows building parallel Caml programs running in SPMD mode on a network of workstations for example.
