standard) from the Laboratory for Scientific Computing at the
University of Notre Dame.

from the Argonne National Laboratory.
o Pseudo-tty support for remote IO (e.g., line buffered output).
o Ability to pass environment variables through mpirun.
o Ability to mpirun shell scripts/
run LAM/MPI programs).
o Ability to execute non-MPI programs across the multicomputer.
o Added configurable ability to zero-fill internal LAM buffers
before they are used (for development tools such as Purify).
o Greatly expanded error messages; provided for customizable
local help files.
