(Full text available)
We report our experiences using the parallel programming environments, PVM, HeNCE, p4 and TCGMSG and discuss some aspects concerning the performance and software engineering issues. A brief overview of each environment is given and a number of case studies written using a number of different programming paradigms are presented. Some of the examples presented are simple ``building-blocks'' which may enhance the performance of parallel applications, others are complete applications.
