We are pleased to announce the first release of the NDP package, a
library for writing nested data-parallel programs on shared-memory

The NDP library is part of the Data Parallel Haskell project. For a
description of the project, see

At the moment, the library is far from complete and contains numerous
bugs and inefficiencies. However, it can be used for writing simple
data-parallel programs. The paper "Data Parallel Haskell: a status
report" (http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~chak/papers/CLPKM07.html) describes
the underlying design and go through an example program.



Hopefully Sun will take a page from Azul Systems' book and implement automatic parallelization of for() loops on arrays in the JVM soon. I hope the GCC guys are working on similiar stuff, too. But until then, it looks like you're gonna have to work in a functional language.
