Semi-explicit parallel programming library

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
This package provides a library for semi-explicit parallel programming with Eden. Eden extends Haskell with a small set of syntactic constructs for explicit process specification and creation. While providing enough control to implement parallel algorithms efficiently, it frees the programmer from the tedious task of managing low-level details by introducing automatic communication (via head-strict lazy lists), synchronisation, and process handling. The Eden-modules depend on GHC, and should normally use a GHC extension to support parallel execution using message passing. This modified GHC-Eden compiler is available from http://www.mathematik.uni-marburg.de/~eden. When built using a standard GHC, this package will produce a threaded simulation of Eden. The Eden homepage http://www.mathematik.uni-marburg.de/~eden provides more documentation and a tutorial.
