This article was authored using Mathematica 3.0 and Mathematica 4.0 on a dual processor (PII 350MHz) Windows NT machine. In addition, the Mathematica application package Parallel Computing Toolkit was used to perform evaluations in parallel in Versions 3 and 4. If you do not have access to this package you can simply perform the same evaluation in two separate notebooks using Version 3 and 4 kernels respectively.
This sets up an evaluation function
Launch Version 3 and 4 kernels.
Define a short evaluation function that sends the evaluation off to the launched Version 3 and 4 kernels. The notation
Set the home directory where all the external data files are available.
