Mentat, an object-oriented parallel processing system designed to directly address the difficulty of developing architecture-independent parallel programs, is discussed. The Mentat system consists of two components: the Mentat programming language and the Mentat runtime system. The Mentat programming language, which is based on C++, is described. Performance results from implementing the Mentat runtime system on a network of Sun 3 and 4 workstations, the Silicon Graphics Iris, the Intel iPSC/2, and the Intel iPSC/860 are presented.<>
