GREAT NEWS!! I released a new version of metasim. It does not contain any relevant new feature, but it can now work with gcc 3.2. Also, many bug fixes, and a new installation procedure. Check out the download page!!
Welcome to the the home page of the MetaSim project. MetaSim is
a C++ library for discrete event simulation. It is possible to build
libraries of classes for simulating the most different systems based
on MetaSim. Two examples are RTSim and FTRSim.
The MetaSim library is an Open Source Project. Soon it will be
distributed under the GNU Public License.
The MetaSim library is now beta 0.7. This means that, if you are
interested in using and experimenting with this software, we encourage
you to download and play with it and use it for you simulation
needs. We are interested in you comments suggestions and bug
reports. If you want to get involved in further developments of the
project, please contact us!
In the latest release, we use the cephes
numeric library to generate the Gaussian distribution. It is possible
to disable this support modifying a simple configuration file
- November 5 2003 After a long time, a new version of
metasim is out, release 0.7. It contains some improvement, it is
easier to install and to update. Soon, I'll release some new version,
so keep checking this page.
- June 9: time for release 0.6! Now I added the GEvent
template class for making life easier to the programmer. Sorry, I had
no time for documentation, it will follows soon (I hope). Also, there
is another useful example: a model for simulation of ethernet
links. Look at the directory examples.
- May 15 2001: release 0.5 is available for download. Added
feature: the RandomGen class. Now it is possible to separately specify
a random generator for each randomvar, or group of random vars.
- Jan 15 2001: release 0.4 is available for download.
