README for Hurricane Distlock Software


The files in this package are routines adapted from the Hurricane kernel to run as user processes on the Hector multiprocessor. The files are as follows: I would like to be able to say that you can just type make and run this package on your system, but like I said earlier, this stuff is right out of the kernel. Consequently, it has a bunch of M88k assembler that you have to replace with macros/functions/your own assembler. Also it uses Hurricane specific system calls, which you have to adapt to from whatever your system has. Even still, the code could still be useful as a template/guide as you experiment with different lock implementations on your system.

Have fun!
