Abstract: Qlisp is an extension of Common Lisp, to support parallel programming. It was initially designed by John McCarthy and Richard Gabriel in 1984. Since then it has been under development both at Stanford University and Lucid, Inc. and has been implemented on several commercial shared-memory parallel computers. Qlisp is a queue-based, shared-memory, multi-processing language. This report is a tutorial introduction to the Stanford dialect of Qlisp.
