The Linda Machine is a parallel computer that has been designed to support the Linda parallel programming environment in hardware. Programs in Linda communicate through a logically shared associative memory called tuple space. The goal of the Linda Machine project is to implement Linda's high-level shared-memory abstraction efficiently on a nonshared-memory architecture. The authors describe th
