Network application developers often meet performance demands by using
C-language variants that expose NPU-specific details.  This
fine-grained control of tasks and machine resources delivers
optimizations but can also result in very complex, hard-to-port code.

CloudShield Technologies <http://www.cloudshield.com/> is exploring a
different approach with its packetC language.  packetC uses a
coarse-grain model of packet parallelism and hides processor-specific
features.  Its most distinctive features are new data types and
operators for classic packet-processing. This talk provides an
overview of packetC and its application environment.  It describes two
of its most unusual data types in detail.

Ralph Duncan is one of packetC's three designers.  He worked on Navy
Ada compilers for Control Data and researched parallel processing
technologies for the Air Force.  More recently, he ported C compilers
and served on the IEEE P-1800 committee for interfaces between
systemVerilog and C.  He is the packetC compiler project lead for
