The DASWAM system is a proto-type implementation of the DDAS and-parallel execution scheme for Prolog. It was initially implemented as a pseudo parallel system where the parallel execution was simulated, but this was subsequently converted to a real parallel system that has been ported to a wide range of shared-memory multiprocessors. The initial results from this system are very encouraging. The purpose of this paper is to serve as a companion paper to [JICSLP96], documenting the implementation of the parallel DASWAM system itself.
