interesting when the computation cost is higher than the cost of disk
space required by intermediate products.
In addition, the Pipelet engine has been designed to
process *data* *sets*. It takes advantage of the parallelisation
opportunity that comes with data which share the same structure (data
arrays), to dispatch the computational tasks on parallel architecture.
The data dependency scheme is also used to save CPU time, and allows
to handle very big data sets processing.
*** The Pipelet functionalities
Pipelet is a free framework which helps you :
+ to write and manipulate pipelines with any dependency scheme,
+ to dispatch the computational tasks on parallel architectures,
+ to keep track of what processing has been applied to your data and perform comparisons.
+ to keep track of what processing has been applied to your data and perform comparisons,
+ to carry pipelines source code from development to production and
adapt to different hardware and software architectures.

**** Getting Pipelet
There is not any published stable release of Pipelet right now.
***** Software status
The first version of the software is currently in the process of
stabilisation. The Pipelet engine has now reached the level of
desired sophistication. On the other hand, the user interface has
been developped in a minimalist way. It includes the main
functionalities but with a design which could and will be more user
friendly.
