Abstract

A computer system as set forth in U.S. Patent 4,177,513 has an inter-task communication mechanism where send receive messages (SRMs) are enqueued on send receive queues (SRQs) according to a key field value in the send-receive message. Data can then be sorted by placing the data into the key fields of the send-receive messages.
