This paper describes the hardware, software and application programming of a small multiprocessor, designed and built, which consists of eight IBM PC/XT motherboards connected together using point-to-point byte-wide bidirectional communication links with storage at each link. Pascal has been enhanced with a few routines for interprocess communication and remote process initialization. This facilitates writing parallel programs. MSDOS is the underlying operating system.
