This package contains the library Netowrk.Ports for distributed programming with ports. In contrast to similar concepts in other languages, this library allows sending logic variables over ports which can be used as back channels.

The ideas behind this library are described in:

The examples directory contains some examples for using this library.


If the environment variable TRACEPORTS is set to yes, some information about the port communication is traced on stderr.
