Implementing a Non-Strict Functional Programming Language on a Threaded Architecture
Abstract. The combination of a language with ne-grain implicit parallelism and a data ow evaluation scheme is suitable for high-level programming on massively parallel architectures. We are developing a compiler of V, a non-strict functional programming language, for EARTH(Ecient Architecture for Running THreads). Our compiler generates codes in ThreadedC, which is a lower-level programming language for EARTH. We have developed translation rules, and integrated them into the compiler. Since overhead caused by ne-grain processing may degrade performance for programs with little parallelism, we have adopted a thread merging rule. The preliminary performance results are encouraging. Although further improvement is required for non-strict data-structures, some codes generated from V programs by our compiler achieved comparable performance with the performance of hand-written Threaded-C codes.
