SAL Home PARALLEL Programming Languages & Systems


Parallaxis is a structured programming language for data-parallel programming (SIMD systems). The language is based on sequential Modula-2, but extended by machine-independent parallel constructs. In Parallaxis an abstraction is achieved by declaring a processor configuration in functional form, specifying number, arrangement, and connections between processors. With these "virtual processors and connections", an application program can be constructed independent of the actual computer hardware. We believe this results in more readable and understandable parallel programs.
