Binary package “lam-runtime” in ubuntu maverick

LAM runtime environment for executing parallel programs

 LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) is an open source implementation of the
 Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard.
 Some enhancements in LAM 6.3 are:
  o Added the MPI-2 C++ bindings package (chapter 10 from the MPI-2
      standard) from the Laboratory for Scientific Computing at the
      University of Notre Dame.
  o Added ROMIO MPI I/O package (chapter 9 from the MPI-2 standard)
      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/debuggers/etc. (that eventually
      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.
  o Expanded and updated documentation.
  o Various bug fixes and minor enhancements.
