Computing Dictionary

(United Functions and Objects) A hybrid functional and object-oriented language designed by John Seargant at manchester university for general-purpose parallel computation.

To a first approximation, UFO is a strict, higher-order functional language with an object-oriented type system, and strong support for numeric computation in the form of SISAL-style arrays and loops. Parallelism is implicit, and applies at various different levels of granularity, thereby facilitating implementations on a wide range of parallel architectures.

It is planned to run it on a 64 processor ksr machine.

Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing a UFO in your dream means your desires to find your spiritual purpose in life. Alternatively, it indicates that you are feeling alienated from those around you. The dream may also be a metaphor suggesting that you are a little "spacey" or have "spaced out" attitude. You need to be more grounded and come back to reality.
