AB Programming massively-parallel machine is a daunting task for any human programmer and parallelization may even be impossiblefor any compiler. Instead, thefunctional programming paradigm may prove to be an ideal solution by providing an implicitlyparallel interface to the programmer. We describe here the Sisal project (Stream and Iteration in a Single Assignment Language) and its goal to provide a general-purpose user interface for a wide range of parallel processing platforms.
