GAP package ParGAP
The ParGAP (Parallel GAP) package implements Master-Slave parallelism on multiple machines and in doing so provides a way of writing parallel programs using the GAP language. Former names of the package were ParGAP/MPI and GAP/MPI; the word MPI refers to Message Passing Interface, a well-known standard for parallelism. ParGAP is based on the MPI standard, and includes a subset implementation of MPI, to provide a portable layer with a high level interface to BSD sockets. Since knowledge of MPI is not required for use of this software, we now refer to the package as simply ParGAP. ParGAP also implements the more advanced TOP-C model for cooperative parallelism.
