<language> (United Functions and Objects) A hybrid functional and
object-oriented language designed by John Seargant at Manchester University for
general-purpose parallel computation.
To a first approximation, UFO is a strict, higher-order functional language with
an object-oriented type system, and strong support for numeric computation in
the form of SISAL-style arrays and loops. Parallelism is implicit, and applies
at various different levels of granularity, thereby facilitating implementations
on a wide range of parallel architectures.
It is planned to run it on a 64 processor KSR machine.
