Whilst there has been much work over the last ten years on the parallel implementation of logic programming, the vast majority of it has been focused on shared memory multiprocessor systems. In this paper, however, we focus on the exploitation of the other major type of parallel architecture-distributed memory systems. We present the design and study the performance of the Dorpp or-parallel Prolog system on the EDS parallel machine. This is basically a distributed memory machine except for one… CONTINUE READING
