Mobile agents & perl: Choices
By Steve Purkis
- From http://tiamat.epn.nu/~spurkis/Agent:
"Agent - the Transportable Agent Perl module --
A transportable perl agent is Perl code that can communicate
with other disparate entities, and can migrate between computers
over a heterogeneous network to perform some task for a client."
- Snips from the perldoc:
A Perl Agent...
"Is any chunk of Perl code that can accomplish some
user-defined objective by communicating with other
agents, and manipulating any data it obtains.
