NAME

       XPA -  Public Access to Data and Algorithms

SYNOPSIS

       This document is the Table of Contents for XPA.

DESCRIPTION

       The XPA messaging system provides seamless communication between many
       kinds of Unix programs, including X programs and Tcl/Tk programs.  It
       also provides an easy way for users to communicate with XPA-enabled
       programs by executing XPA client commands in the shell or by utilizing
       such commands in scripts.  Because XPA works both at the programming
       level and the shell level, it is a powerful tool for unifying any
       analysis environment: users and programmers have great flexibility in
       choosing the best level or levels at which to access XPA services, and
       client access can be extended or modified easily at any time.

       A program becomes an XPA-enabled server by defining named points of
       public access through which data and commands can be exchanged with
       other client programs (and users).  Using standard TCP sockets as a
       transport mechanism, XPA supports both single-point and broadcast
       messaging to and from these servers.  It supports direct communication
       between clients and servers, or indirect communication via an
       intermediate message bus emulation program. Host-based access control
       is implemented, as is as the ability to communicate with XPA servers
       across a network.

       XPA implements a layered interface that is designed to be useful both
       to software developers and to users.  The interface consists of a
       library of XPA client and server routines for use in C/C++ programs and
       a suite of high-level user programs built on top of these libraries.
       Using the XPA library, access points can be added to Tcl/Tk programs,
       Xt programs, or to Unix programs that use the XPA event loop or any
       event loop based on select().  Client access subroutines can be added
       to any Tcl/Tk, Xt, or Unix program. Client access also is supported at
       the command line via a suite of high-level programs.
