Concurrent Euclidcomputing dictionary

<programming language>

<parallel> A concurrent extension of a subset of Euclid ("Simple Euclid") developed by J.R. Cordy and R.C. Holt of the University of Toronto in 1980.

Concurrent Euclid features separate compilation, modules, processes and monitors, signal and wait on condition variables, 'converters' to defeat strong type checking, absolute addresses. All procedures and functions are re-entrant. TUNIS (a Unix-like operating system) is written in Concurrent Euclid.

Concurrent Massey Hopecomputing dictionary

<programming language>

<computer programming> An extension of Massey Hope, by Peter Burgess, Robert Pointon, and Nigel Perry <N.Perry@massey.ac.nz> of Massey University, NZ, that provides multithreading and typed inter-thread communication. It uses C for intermediate code rather than assembly language.

(01 Apr 1999)

<programming language>

(CML) A concurrent extension of SML/NJ written by J. Reppy at Cornell University in 1990. CML supports dynamic thread creation and synchronous message passing on typed channels. Threads are implemented using first-class continuations. First-class synchronous operations allow users to tailor their synchronisation abstractions for their application. CML also supports both stream I/O and low-level I/O in an integrated fashion.

Latest version: 0.9.8, as of 01 Mar 1994, requires SML/NJ 0.75 or later.

concurrent validitymedical dictionary

An index of criterion-related validity used to predict performance in a real-life situation given at about the same time as the test or procedure; the extent to which the index from one test correlates with that of a nonidentical test or index; e.g., how well a score on an aptitude test correlates with the score on an intelligence test.

Concurrent Versions Systemcomputing dictionary

<computer programming> (CVS) A cross-platform code management system originally based on RCS.

CVS tracks all revisions to a file in an associated file with the same name as the original file but with the string ",v" (for version) appended to the filename. These files are stored in a (possibly centralised) repository.

Changes are checked in or "committed" along with a comment (which appears in the the "commit log"). CVS has the notions of projects, branches, file locking and many others needed to provide a full-functioned repository.

It is commonly accessed over over its own "anonCVS" protocol for read-only access (many open source projects are available by anonymous CVS) and over the SSH protocol by those with commit privileges ("committers").

CVS has been rewritten several times and does not depend on RCS. However, files are still largely compatible; one can easily migrate a project from RCS to CVS by copying the history files into a CVS repository. A sub-project of the OpenBSD project is building a complete new implementation of CVS, to be called OpenCVS.
