Title Persistent Immutable Shared Abstractions for Concurrent Scheme
Date 1994
Description A write-once, read-many persistent store has been developed for Concurrent Scheme, a distributed-memory parallel Lisp for the Mayfly multicomputer. The prototype implementation supports the explicit store, and implicit retrieval, of instances of the Scheme data types. Items are stored into per node repositories, using a modified form of the original Concurrent Scheme "message" format. Potential access concurrency and transaction atomicity of the store are discussed. The efficacy of the prototype is demonstrated via its utilization within a parallel ray tracer, on a network implementation of Concurrent Scheme.
