Abstract : We describe a multicomputer run-time executive called the Synchronization Manager (SaM). SaM makes it easier to develop, debug, and enhance multicomputer software because it automatically manages the synchronization required by an object-oriented program to produce the same results as a single-computer execution. We describe our experience with using SaM to run several application programs (image perspective transformation, neural network training and multiple target tracking) written in an object- oriented extension of C, called CPM, on a Symult S2010 multicomputer. CPM is described and performance results are presented that suggest the viability of our approach.... Multicomputer, Synchronization manager, Object-oriented extension of C.
