The Design and Implementation of System Level Language for the DADO Parallel Machine
1987 (English)In: Proceedings of the Twentieth Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences 1987. Volume 3: Healthcare Systems, Special Topics, IEEE and ACM , 1987, 152-162 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we describe necessary criteria for the design of parallel system level languages and their support environment. We base the criteria on our own experiences in building a system level language parallel PSL (Parallel Portable Standard Lisp) for the DADO machine developed at Columbia University. The DADO machine is a special purpose massively parallel binary tree structured architecture. We describe the process of language design and implementation on a 1023 node prototype machine. After generalizing what we have learned from this specific implementation to the generic task of building a system level language for a parallel machine, we conclude with a discussion of desirable characteristics such a language should have to allow the easy transition from a language with explicit parallelism to one where the parallelism is implicit.
