We have designed a portable interface between shared--memory multiprocessors
and Standard ML of New Jersey. The interface is based on the conventional
kernel thread model and provides facilities that can be used to implement
user--level thread packages. The interface supports experimentation with
different thread scheduling policies and synchronization constructs. It
has been ported to three different multiprocessors and used to construct a
general purpose, user--level thread package. In this paper, we discuss
the interface and its implementation and performance, with emphasis on the
Silicon Graphics 4D/380S multiprocessor.
