A Higher-Level Language for a Large Parallel Array Computer

Leonard Uhr

This paper describes and discusses several pattern recognition programs that have been coded for and test-run on the CLIP parallel array computer. These programs were coded using a first version of a "higher-level language" whose compiler outputs object code for either CLIP3 (a 12 by 16 array of processors) or CLIP4 (a 96 by 96 array of processors). It was possible to code in a few hours simple programs with 20 to 50 instructions that compiled into CLIP programs with from 200 to 1100 instructions.
