The Orca Parallel Programming Language
Orca is a language for parallel programming on distributed systems,
based on the shared data-object model.
This model is a simple and portable form of object-based distributed
The language has been implemented (still in experimental form)
on the following platforms:
- Amoeba 5.0
- SunOS 4.1
- Solaris 2
- Parix (T800)
We expect to have an alpha-distribution of the system by the summer of 1994.
Orca is described in the book
Programming Distributed Systems and in several published
Some selected papers on Orca
are available via FTP.
