IceHMS is holonic or multi-agent framework based on "The Internet Communication Engine"(Ice). 
It has been implemented to facilitate the development of holonic situated multi-agent systems.
It requires Ice and Python to be installed. This is a prototype and many things may not work

The following environment variables can be necessary:
export ICEHMS_ROOT=$HOME/icehms/
export ICEHMS_REGISTRY="tcp -p 12000 -h tlpc484.sintef.no" #Define where the registry server is, the default is localhost 12000:
alternatively this can be done programmatically after importing icehms in python: icehms.IceRegistrServer = "tcp -p 12000 -h localhost"
export PYTHONPATH=$ICEHMS_ROOT/python/:$PYTHONPATH

slices files defining the interface of your objects may be installed in different places:
they can be installed system width
they can be located in the current directory
they can be in user slice directory in ~/.icehms/slices/
they can be at custom places: 
export ICEHMS_SLICES="$HOME/MyProject/MySlices/;$HOME/MyProject2/Slices"
