HPF/Fortran D, programming, parallelism
Programming Languages and Compilers
In this paper, we present the first, preliminary results of HPF/Fortran-D language analysis based on compiling and running benchmark applications using a prototype implementation of HPF/Fortran-D compiler. The analysis indicate that the HPF is a very convenient tool for programming many applications on massively parallel and/or distributed systems. In addition, we cumulate experience on how to parallelize irregular problems to extend the scope of Fortran-D beyond HPF and suggest future extensions to the Fortran standard.
