An applicative language, SISAL (streams and iteration in a single-assignment language), is used to examine how effective the applicative approach can be in programming parallel computers. SISAL is a research language for investigating issues in parallel processing, especially for numerical computing. A prototype implementation of SISAL is described, focusing on loops and streams and on microtasking software. Performance results are reported for Livermore kernel 1, the Sieve prime finder… CONTINUE READING
