Described is a strategy for the compilation of LISP programs for a concurrent processing system in the presence of global side effects. The method supports “horizontal” concurrency, the concurrency available when two arguments of a function can be evaluated simultaneously and without violating the semantics of sequential LISP. The method works for Standard LISP and is not restricted to “pure” LISP. Conventional programs may usually be compiled without modification.
