WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Paper Details

A preprocessor to augment the description of occam processes for multitransputer machines

Authors: Ohara, Hiromi, Iizuka, Hajime


This paper describes a preprocessor which is designed to make the description of parallel processes of Occam easier. It takes a source program written in ordinary Occam language and a description of the configuration of the hardware on which it is intended to run. The programmer need not consider the particular hardware structure. The preprocessor assigns each process to an appropriate processor and produces the Occam program with process-to-processor allocation statements. Design philosophy, implementation details and some results are shown.
