There has recently been an interest in the introduction
of reconfigurable buses to existing parallel architectures.
Among such architectures
the Reconfigurable Mesh (RM) has attracted much attention
because of its simplicity. This paper presents
RMSIM (Reconfigurable Mesh Simulator),
a serial simulator written in C, which permits the study
of algorithms for a restricted 3-dimensional RM
(also known as a mesh of meshes), in a monoprocessor environment.
RMSIM is an easy-to-use simulator capable
of simulating any algorithm in different axis orientations within restricted
regions. To enhance debugging facilities RMSIM is equipped with a
snapshotter to generate Latex pictures of any planar seqment of the
simulated mesh in any step of program execution.
