This paper describes the structure and tasking features of the programming language Martlet. Martlet is based on two languages: Pascal and the US Department of Defence language Ada. Essentially, the sequential part of the language is Pascal and this has been extended to include a number of the structural and tasking features of Ada. The latter are described in the paper, and also the overheads required to implement these features on an actual multiprocessor structure are presented.
