SAL Home PARALLEL Programming Languages & Systems


HORB is a distributed language systems that attained both portability and interoperability for wide range of machines. We can write a program in HORB that runs on most of operating systems in the market. To be honest, it's an inherited virtue from Java which HORB is based on. Programs written in Java runs greatly on many machines without recompilation. However, it lacked distributed computing capability. Java runs on only one machine as C++ does. If we use HORB, we can run a HORB program spreading over many, different kinds machines.
