Title: A Parallel Lisp Simulator
Author: Weening, Joseph S.
Date: May 1988
Abstract: CSIM is a simulator for parallel Lisp, based on a continuation passing interpreter. It models a shared-memory multiprocessor executing programs written in Common Lisp, extended with several primitives for creating and controlling processes. This paper describes the structure of the simulator, measures its performance, and gives an examples its use with a parallel Lisp program.
