Abstract
THE PROPOSED INNOVATION CONSISTS OF A PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT WHERE EXECUTION TAKES PLACE THROUGHOUT A (PERHAPS HETEROGENEOUS) NETWORK OF COMPUTING DEVICES. FROM THE PROGRAMMER'S POINT OF VIEW, THE LANGUAGE APPEARS AS AN ICONIC OBJECT FLOW LANGUAGE (SUCH AS PROGRAPH) WITH A FEW EXTENSIONS FOR ATTACHING SALIENCE TO SELECTED PROCESSES. NOKNOWLEDGE OF THE NETWORK ARCHITECTURE OR PROTOCOL IS REQUIRED OF THE PROGRAMMER. FROM AN EXECUTION POINT OF VIEWTHE LANGUAGE APPEARS TO BE A THREADED SET OF REMOTE PROCEDURE CALLS WHICH MAY RESULT IN EXECUTION BY ANY DEVICE WITH THE APPROPRIATE CAPABILITY (SUCH AS AMOEBA). FROM AN OPERATING SYSTEM POINT OF VIEW, THE LANGUAGE APPEARS TO RESIDE ON A NETWORK OPERATING SYSTEM WITH AN INTEGRAL DATABASE (CODE STORE) SUPPORTING THE REMOTE PROCEDURE CALLS.
