The solution is obvious: Create a server at the ILL
(we call it BARNS) which allows programs to execute
on ILL computers but with input/output via the internet
to "standardised" frames and applets within the clients
web-browser. This is not simply an exercise in creating
an HTML form for each program, BARNS must:
1. appear mutli-user, multi-threaded, and access multiple nodes.
2. handle all aspects of user login, accounts, processes, zombies etc.
3. create standardised frames which can handle almost any program requirements with minimum effort.
4. automatically direct output to the correct frame: program, graphics or tools.
We will show how little modification is necessary in order that programs can run under BARNS and demonstrate how interactivity is achieved by running LAMP (Large Array Manipulation Program) on an ILL computer with output to a web-browser at NOBUGS.
