Proposes an extension to the authors' current C* programming environment that allows a programmer to connect multiple data-parallel modules with each other and with parallel I/O devices. The interface is based upon the Linda concept of multiple asynchronous processes interacting through tuple space. The resulting programs can be seen as single instruction stream, multiple data stream (SIMD) within each module and multiple instruction stream, multiple data stream (MIMD) between modules. Programs can run with a high level of efficiency, because the purpose of the Linda calls is to facilitate the relatively infrequent interactions between modules
