The Metacenter Workbench

                               

Overview

The Metacenter Workbench, developed at the Cornell Theory Center is a version
of the Scientist's Workbench tailored for users of the NSF Metacenter ; however,
access to the Metacenter Workbench is not limited.  The Metacenter Workbench
was demonstrated at Supercomputing '92, running on machines from all four
NSF Supercomputer Centers.  It provides a set of menus containing functions of
general use to supercomputer users, such as anonymous ftp access to each of the
NSF Centers, access to the "Gopher" facility at each of the NSF Centers, access
to other supercomputing databases on the internet, and standard communications
(telnet, ping, etc.) with Metacenter hosts.  It also includes a menu highlighting
Metacenter software tools, such as NCSA's Collage.  

Obtaining the Metacenter Workbench

The Metacenter Workbench is available via anonymous ftp from
info.tc.cornell.edu, in the directory pub/swb/meta.  Three ascii files comprise the
Metacenter Workbench; start with README.META.  The Scientist's
Workbench must be installed prior to running the Metacenter Workbench.  

For more information about the Scientist's Workbench, contact the project
managers, Dan Dwyer and Caroline Hecht, sciwb at tc.cornell.edu.
