Abstract GLYPNIR is one of the earliest existing languages designed for programming the Illiac IV computer. The syntax of the language is based on ALGOL 60, but has been extended to allow the programmer explicitly to specify the parallelism of his algorithm in terms of 64-word vectors.This paper describes the characteristics, goals, and philosophy of the language, and discusses some of the problems associated with parallel computer architectures.
