  abstract= "While special chips for message transfer in multi-transputer
     machines do not yet exist, there are several software
     solutions which may be used. Dynamic link reconfiguration is
     fastest but requires additional switching hardware and a
     sophisticated common bus to control requests from all
     network nodes. Through-routing of messages via the network
     is slower but the method is applicable to any transputer
     network. This paper makes a comparison between two
     through-routing solutions for distributed message passing
     and shows how the parameters of a software implementation
     influence the communication throughput. Several conclusions
     about the improvement of particular through-routing software
     are made and the results of the experimental performance
     evaluation under different conditions are given."
