Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joyce is a secure, concurrent programming language designed by Per Brinch Hansen in the 1980s. It is based on the sequential language Pascal and the principles of Communicating Sequential Processes. It was created to address the shortcomings of CSP to be applied itself as a programming language, and to povide a tool, primarily for teaching, for distributed system implementation. The language is based around the concept of agents; concurrently executed pocesses that communicate only by the use of channels and message passing. Agents may activate sub-agents dynamically and recursively. The development of Joyce formed the foundation of the language SuperPascal, also developed by Brinch Hansen around 1993.
