<language> (StarLISP) A data-parallel extension of Common LISP developed by Cliff Lasser and Steve Omohundro, employees of the Thinking Machines Corporation to provide an efficient yet high-level language to program the Connection Machine.

StarLisp operated on PVARS (Parallel Variables) which represented Connection Machine memory, and were essentially vectors: one element per CM processor (or virtual processor).
