 Dear Octave Developers/Users,

 We have developed a parallel programming library intended for (C or
 F77) + MPI programmers. The library is more productive and offers
 better performance than MPI.

 We are planning to have a MATLAB port of the library. But, since
 MATLAB has several parallel programming tools (Mathworks themselves
 ship a Distributed Computing Toolbox) which provide adequate support
 for parallel programming, we are now pondering over porting to OCTAVE
 instead. We want to know the state of the art in OCTAVE parallel
 programming. We need a strong business case for our project. If OCTAVE
 does not have capabilities similar to MATLAB, then poring our library
 to OCTAVE will result in a new product. In this regard, if you can let
 us know the current support for OCTAVE parallel programming and the
 necessity of parallel programming tools in OCTAVE, that will give us a
 clear picture.
It is Octave, not OCTAVE.
What are the license terms for your library How will it be linked
with Octave?
