The "Worm" programs - early experience with a distributed computation (reprint of a 1980 paper)

 

"The 'worm' programs were an experiment in the development of distributed computations: programs that span machine boundaries and also replicate themselves in idle machines. A 'worm' is composed of multiple 'segments,' each running on a different machine."
