An extended functional programming language, the Functional C language is proposed. The language provides a granularity-controlling feature that helps to reduce the communication overhead in the program execution. In addition, a programmer can impose several evaluation schemes on program segments for efficient evaluation. The language can be regarded as an extension of the C language in the sense that intergrain operations are specified by using functional language features, whereas intragrain operations can be specified by using most features of C. This helps to expand the application domain of Functional C to that of imperative programming languages. The target machine for Functional C is described
