Abstract: Persistent Linda (PLinda) is a programming environment for writing fault-tolerant distributed/parallel programs that may be run on networks of workstations. PLinda is a set of extensions to the Linda parallel programming model and PLinda/C++ (and Fortran77 respectively) is an implementation combined with the sequential language C++.

The PLinda User Manual introduces the PLinda model, mechanics of the PLinda operations, and programming in PLinda/C++ and PLinda/Fortran77.
