Abstract
(English)
pSather is a parallel extension of Salher aimrd at shared memory parallel architectures. A prototype of the language has been implemented on a Sequent Symmetry and on SUN Sparc- Stations. In this paper, we explain the semantics of the few parallel constructions in pSather and illustrate their general usefulness. In particular, pSather monitors are one of the basic new features introduced in the language to deal with parallelism. We show how monitors are a simple, yet general feature which can be used to build various synchronization paradigms and supports parallel threads.
