Hi all,

I am a newbie with spread toolkit. I want to know more about the SAFE_MESS
type. I would like to know, if I send a message from a process connected to
a daemon to a group. Does SAFE_MESS 100% guarantees that all of the
processes in that group receive the message? (even if they do not crash)
Moreover, does any acknowledgement provided to the process that sends a
message of SAFE_MESS type that all the other process have received the
What SP_multicast() returns, whenever it sends a message of SAFE_MESS? ( I
have already read the spread toolkit guide, but I want to know exactly the
meaning of the return types. Are they a sort of acknowledgement?
