Abstract

The recovery block scheme has been introduced as a method of providing fault-tolerance at the software level in a computing system. From the widespread interest that has been expressed in the scheme there appears to be a standard set of questions which are posed about its implementation and utility. This paper presents a brief overview of the recovery block scheme and then examines in detail the issues taht these questions raise.
