Abstract

Concurrent C0 is a type-safe, C-like language with session-typed communication that makes writing highly concurrent, message passing programs easier, safer, and more efficient than other languages. Concurrent C0 presents a novel interpretation of a forwarding operation which allows channels to be combined in a well-defined way. We provide C- and Go-based implementations with language based optimizations that outperform traditional message passing techniques.
