Post New svipc plugin
An alternative to mpy !

svipc is based on the sysV IPC. It provide wrappers to play with shared memory, semaphores, message passing. In short, it can be used to build up efficient parallel computing within yorick! I have used it extensively in the latest version of yao (AO simulator written in yorick).

It's not perfect, but it's working. grab it at ... .9-src.tgz
There is also a python plugin in the same package, so you can even share memory (and pass messages, use semaphores) between yorick and python !

Although it bear the 0.9 version number, this is the first public release. We have used it relatively extensively at Gemini, but I'm sure you guys and galls will find a way to break it. When this happens, be sure to report it here !

There is a yorick directory inside the main yorick-svipc release directory.
Use the regular build drill ( yorick -batch make.i && make clean && make install ) to install it. There is no dependency. It should work on Linux *and* OsX* (not extensively tested on the later).
