We propose a new visual programming language, called GRAPNEL (GRAphical Process's NEt Language), for designing distributed parallel programs based on the message passing programming paradigm. GRAPNEL supports graphically the Process Group abstraction and the automatic generation of several regular process topology based on prede ned topology templates. Dynamic process creation and destruction are possible but can be applied only in a well structured manner. GRAPNEL is a hybrid language, where… CONTINUE READING
