Opus is a new programming language designed to assist in coordinating the execution of multiple, independent program modules. With the help of Opus, coarse grained tush parallelism between data parallel modules can be expressed in a clean and structured way, In this paper we address the problems of how to build a compilation and runtime support system that can efficiently implement the Opus constructs, Our design considers the often-conflicting goals of efficiency and modular construction through software re-use, In particular, we present the system requirements for an efficient Opus implementation, the Opus runtime system, and describe how they work together to provide the underlying services that the Opus compiler needs for a broad class of machines, Copyright (C) 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
