Considerable discussion has appeared in recent literature about 'distributed programming'. One area of discussion concerns the design of programming languages which support distributed algorithms. This paper examines the important issues in programming language design for distributed computing, and presents an example of a language philosophy which supports program development for a distributed environment. It also discusses experiences with the STARMOD distributed programming language.
