Abstract : This paper proposes a definition for VPC, an extended C programming language for vector-parallel applications. VPC is a superset of the conventional C language that contains extensions for vector and parallel machines. New constructs and their semantics are presented, along with some discussion about potential problems that arise when extending C into the parallel domain. The reader is assumed to be familiar with the C programming language--this paper only describes those aspects of VPC that differ from the standard definition. Keywords: Parallel processing; Synchronization.
