The PLACE statement has the form
and acts like an ACTIVATE statement, except that an ACTIVATE statement creates one copy of a SERVER for use by all processes, and a PLACE statement creates a copy of the SERVER for use only by those processes the id-numbers of which are given in the statement. Thus, using the PLACE statement, multiple copies of the same SERVER may be generated.
The optional node parameter specifies the virtual processor to execute the server.
This statement may be @-commented as follows:
PLACE server-name(...) @AS: id-number @AT: node @FOR, id-number @AND, id-number
The statement DENY server:id-number can be used to close down one copy of a server while leaving others in operation.
