Title: Sequencing and fan-out mechanism for causing a set of at least two sequential instructions to be performed in a dataflow processing computer

Abstract

A sequencing and data fanout mechanism is provided for a dataflow processor is activated by an input token which causes a sequence of operations to occur by initiating a first instruction to act on data contained within the token and then executing a sequential thread of instructions identified by either a repeat count and an offset within the token, or by an offset within each preceding instruction.
