Dataparallel C

Dataparallel C is a programming language that enables the development of high-performance computing applications. It was developed by Thinking Machines Corporation in the 1980s as part of their Connection Machine supercomputer project. The language allows users to express parallelism simply and directly through syntactic extensions to ANSI C, enabling algorithms to exploit data-level parallelism across thousands of processors. With Dataparallel C, developers can write code for massively parallel hardware without needing complex low-level programming constructs or specialized knowledge about individual processor communication. This simplicity made it attractive for scientific and engineering computations at the time.
