An environment that lets system applications be expressed as virtual machines, through which architecture-independent multiple-instruction, multiple-data stream (MIMD) programs are written, is described. The virtual machine hides the hardware configuration from the programmer so that the MIMD programming environment always appears the same, regardless of the actual hardware. The data-definition and procedural high-level languages used in the environment and the generation of object code in the environment are discussed. The runtime configuration of the system and an implemented prototype of the system are described.<>
