This paper presents a new language construct for distributed computing. This construct, called cell, allows one to simulate a variety of language constructs, Its salient features provide the programmer with: 1) an effective communication and synchronization scheme, 2) a mechanism to control the order in which various activities within a cell should be executed. We demonstrate the usefulness of our concepts by providing solutions to a variety of programming exercises.
