Abstract: Writing programs for parallel and distributed computing environ­
ments can be significantly more complex than writing programs for their se­
quential counterparts. These complexities mainly arise from the additional syn­
chronization and communication requirements imposed by such environments.
These requirements also make debugging and maintaining such programs sig­
nificantly more complicated. The problem of debugging and maintenance is
further exacerbated by the lack of good debuggers and the lack of proper I/O
support for such environments.
In this paper we describe the design and implementation of an object­
oriented streams library (piostream) which provides convenient and extensi­
