16.2.3 CE Functions

The Cosmic Environment  (CE) provides control for concurrent computation through a ``cube dæmon.'' This resource manager allows multiple real and emulated concurrent computers to be space-shared [Seitz:88a]. The following functions are provided, and we emulate these on systems that provide analogous host functionality (this emulation can be done efficiently on the nCUBE/2, almost trivially on the Gamma, and not at all on the Delta and CM-5):
