We have built a parallel dialect of Scheme called STING that differs from its contemporaries in a number of important respects. STING is intended to be used as an operating system substrate for modern parallel programming languages. The basic concurrency management objects is STING are first-class lightweight threads of control and virtual processors (VPs). Unlike high-level concurrency structures, STING threads and VPs are not encumbered by complex synchronization protocols. Threads and VPs… CONTINUE READING
