Parlog

Parlog is a programming language for parallel systems. The name is a portmanteau of "parallel" and "Prolog," suggesting its relationship with the logic programming language. Parlog can be used to express applications in terms of concurrent processes that communicate through message passing, which makes it suitable for distributed systems. It was designed to work on transputer-based machines but did not gain widespread adoption beyond certain teaching environments and research projects in the 1980s and 1990s when interest in transputers waned.
