Orc is a novel language for distributed and concurrent programming which provides uniform access to computational services, including distributed communication and data manipulation, through sites. Using four simple concurrency primitives, the programmer orchestrates the invocation of sites to achieve a goal, while managing timeouts, priorities, and failures.
See the Orc Web site for examples, documentation, and other resources.
