- We are developing an experimental programming language, MELD, that supports a range of concurrent styles by supporting multiple programming paradigms at multiple levels of granularity. MELD integrates three granularities of parallelism: macro dataflow among statements within a method or among methods for fine grain concurrency, synchronous or asynchronous message passing among local or remote objects for medium grain concurrency, and transactions for large grain concurrency among users.
