Implementing Prolog on a DAP/Multi-transputer computer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A method for implementing Prolog on Massively Parallel Mixed Architecture Systems (MAPMAS) is shown in the paper. A dataflow model representing a Parallel Prolog Abstract Machine is shortly overviewed and illustrated with a parser example. The main contribution of the paper is the explanation how the Parallel Prolog Abstract Machine can be implemented on the target DAP/Multi-Transputer system. The key points of the implementation are the mapping of the operators and the organization of the dataflow based interpretation.
