This crate is a part of discrete event simulation framework DVCompute Simulator (registration number 2021660590 of Rospatent). The dvcompute_gpss crate defines a GPSS-like DSL for sequential simulation, but the same code base is shared by the dvcompute_gpss_cons crate destined for conservative distributed simulation.

The DSL language implements analogs of the following blocks: PREEMPT, RETURN, ASSEMBLE, GATHER, SPLIT, TRANSFER and others. The SELECT block is naturally expressed as a composition of computations. There are analogs of the facility and storage entities.

In general, there are the following main crates: dvcompute (for sequential simulation), dvcompute_dist (for optimistic distributed simulation - from multicore computers till supercomputers), dvcompute_cons (for conservative distributed simulation - from multicore computers till supercomputers) and dvcompute_branch (for nested simulation - theory of games, estimation of the optimal strategy). All four crates are very close. They are based on the same method.
