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.
