The underlying principles of concurrency and data flow are summarized along with a survey of the current data flow languages. A high level data flow language, DIVA, is developed that provides the basic data types and language constructs of traditional languages as well as some unique features of data flow. The organization and data structures of the compiler and assembler are also discussed.
