%X A major obstacle to the use of parallel computers in
   ordinary applications, where their price/performance ratio
   should make them attractive, is the sheer difficulty of
   parallel programming. One approach which can ease the
   difficulties is data parallel programming, because of the
   simplicity of a single\-threaded flow of control. Data
   parallelism also expresses parallelism with enough
   regularity to be readily implemented across a range of
   machine types. In this paper, we describe a data parallel
   model based on a set of second order functions from the
   Bird\-Meertens theory of lists, demonstrate the
   implementation of these functions as a set of
   message\-passing routines, and evaluate their performance on
   transputer networks configured as hy\-percubes.
