The Scriptic Programming Language

  • André van Delft
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 506)


Over the last years a vast number of parallel languages have been developed. A large part of these are not available on ‘normal’ computers, or they do not cooperate easily with other languages. This paper describes Scriptic, a parallel language that extends widely used sequential languages (C, C++). Scriptic offers great expressiveness by incorporating many concepts from process theory dealing with concurrency and communication. Its availability on normal computers allows many software developers to experiment with parallel programming.
