BMDFM allows one to run an application in parallel on shared memory multiprocessor (SMP) systems. BMDFM automatically identifies and executes all parallelism of unparallelized programs due to the static and mainly dynamic scheduling of the data flow instruction sequences derived from the formerly sequential program. BMDFM's dynamic scheduling subsystem performs an efficient SMP emulation of Tagged-Token DFM to provide the transparent dataflow semantics for the applications. No directives for parallel execution are required. No highly knowledgeable parallel programmers are required.
Allegro Common Lisp is a full ANSI Common Lisp (1994) implementation. It contains many extensions, including 32- and 64-bit native compilation, efficient built-in memory management, foreign functions (for interfacing with other languages), multiprocessing, UNICODE and locale support, XML/HTML parsers, a Web client and server, GTK+ interface (1.2 and 2.0), Java interface, OLE interface (Windows only), profiler, regular expressions, an XML RPC implementation, native Lisp RPC, sockets, DLL and shared library support, and more.
