There is a thread on what languages should be used for a new class
of computers called reconfigurable computers in comp.arch.fpga.
These new computer systems are based on reconfigurable Field
Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs let you download a file
that completely reconfigures the logic in the part on the fly.
This gives very low level parallelism. A short overview of
reconfigurable computers can be found at I thought
the thread needed some complier people to give some input so..
