The Concurr language for parallel systems is designed as an easy-to-use parallel programming facility. It provides constructs for expressing parallelism explicitly as well as constructs from which parallelism can be extracted implicitly by the compiler. Thus is offers a framework to evaluate the potential of the explicit and implicit approaches to parallelism within the same programming language. The language also attempts to overcome some restrictions of previous, sequential languages. Concurr can be used to prepare code for either multiprocessor parallel (MIMD) or data parallel (SIMD) architectures
