As symbolic tools are not yet available on the SuperNode reconfigurable multiprocessor, the user is required to carry out manually a number of tasks which are highly minute, time-consuming and quite irrelevant to the distributed program he is developing. Needless to say, this makes the SuperNode machines highly unworkable. Fortunately, all these tasks can be automated. To this end, we designed a configurer : TéNOR, which makes it possible to describe network configurations at a purely symbolic level.
