Abstract: This paper reports the effort made to implement BaLinda Lisp, a parallel Lisp dialect, on transputer arrays. BaLinda lisp supports the FUTURE construct to initiate parallel execution threads, speculative constructs to spawn parallel tasks for results that may be required, and tuple space operations to enforce the proper communication, synchronization, mutual exclusion and shared variable access for parallel tasks. A suite of application programs has been tested on the resulting interpreter and some performance results are presented. The results demonstrate that the interpreter achieves realistic parallelism and provides a high speed symbolic processing environment on transputers.
