Glish is an interpretive language for building loosely-coupled distributed
systems from modular, event-oriented programs. Written by Vern Paxson
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. These programs are written in conventional languages
such as C, C++, or Fortran.
Glish scripts can create local and remote processes and control their
communication. Glish also provides a full, array-oriented programming language
(similar to S) for manipulating binary data sent between the processes. In
general Glish uses a centralised communication model where interprocess
communication passes through the Glish interpreter, allowing dynamic
modification and rerouting of data values, but Glish also supports
point-to-point links between processes when necessary for high performance.
Version 2.4.1 includes an interpreter, C++ class library and user manual. It
requires C++ and there are ports to SunOS, Ultrix, an HP/UX (rusty).
