'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe...

-- Lewis Carroll

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer...

-- William Butler Yeats

NOTE: Gyre has been subsumed by Mozilla's Rust. There will be no further development on gyre.

My term project for Professor Spencer Rugaber's CS 6390, Gyre investigates programming language support for communicating sequential processes, especially on manycore NUMA machines. It is heavily indebted to Erlang, borrowing many themes and a great deal of syntax from that language. Other influences include Concurrent ML (CML) and the BLISS systems programming language. It is partially an outgrowth of my work on libtorque, and a UNIX implementation would likely make use of that library.
