Description/Abstract

Joyce is a parallel programming language based on CSP and Pascal. The language has been moved from the IBM PC to the Encore Multimax. The paper explains how the multiprocessor implementation of Joyce was guided by performance evaluation. The measurements show that the speed-up of Joyce programs follows Amdahl’s law.
