digitalmars.D - Intel Concurrent Collections for Haskell [OT]

From the first blog post:

Well, it happens that the CnC notion of a step is a pure function. A step does
nothing but read its inputs and produce tags and items as output. This design
was chosen to bring CnC to that elusive but wonderful place called
deterministic parallelism. The decision had nothing to do with language
preferences. (And indeed, the primary CnC implementations are for C++ and
Java.) Yet what a great match Haskell and CnC would make! Haskell is the only
major language where we can (1) enforce that steps be pure, and (2) directly
recognize (and leverage!) the fact that both steps and graph executions are
pure.<

Maybe a good enough implementation can be done in D2 too. http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2010/05/27/announcing-intel-concurrent-collections-for-haskell-01/ http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2010/06/01/a-tour-of-haskell-cnc-schedulers/ http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2010/06/03/new-haskell-cnc-release-013-adds-parallel-for-loops/ http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2010/06/07/parallel-performance-in-intel-concurrent-collections-for-haskell-an-in-depth-example/ Bye, bearophile
