The static linking workarounds are for a Cray MTA/2, a multithreaded supercomputer. Although having a rather primitive runtime environment (e.g. no dynamic linker), it does have an advanced parallelizing compiler. (The practical usage is kind of fly-by-wire setup using a front-end workstation.) The MTA/2 is fast architecture for memory-intensive applications. mailing list Received on Thu Feb 03 11:17:30 2005
