CS-4 is a programming language developed by INMOS Ltd. in the 1980s to support its transputer microprocessor. The transputer was designed for parallel computing and used a network of interconnected processors, allowing developers to create scalable and efficient systems for scientific computing, real-time signal processing, and other tasks that benefit from parallelism. CS-4 is imperative in style with elements supporting high-level constructs like channels for message passing between processors, which are central to the transputer architecture — making it easy to write programs that take advantage of the inherent parallelism without needing detailed knowledge of low-level hardware implementation. The combination of C-4's features made it an essential tool within its niche during the era when parallel processing was emerging as a concept in mainstream computing.
