This abbreviated programmer's guide describes the essentials of writing multiple-process-message-passing C programs on UNIX hosts under a runtime system called the Cosmic Environment (version 7.2), and on multicomputers under a node operating systeni called the Reactive Kernel. It is our intention that a person who is already familiar with C and UNIX, and with the formulation of concurrent computations for multicomputers, will find a single reading of this guide to be sufficient preparation to start writing multicomputer programs. The Appendices include reference material and digressions
