MultiLisp




<language> A parallel extension of Scheme with explicit concurrency.

The form (future X) immediately returns a "future", and creates a task to evaluate X.

When the evaluation is complete, the future is resolved to be the value.

["MultiLisp: A Language for Concurrent Symbolic Computation", R. Halstead, TOPLAS pp.501-538 (Oct 1985)].

[Did MultiLisp use PVM as its intermediate language?]
