SAL Home PARALLEL Programming Languages & Systems


ADAPTOR (Automatic DAta Parallelism TranslaTOR) is a public domain HPF compilation system which offers the use of the data parallel, high level programming language High Performance Fortran (HPF) for parallel computing on distributed-memory machines. Due to mature and innovative compilation technologies, the more convenient and user-friendly HPF programs achieve an efficiency comparable to corresponding message passing programs.

One goal of the ADAPTOR project is to provide a compilation system that allows to port Fortran applications to HPF and to analyze their efficiency; the other is to develop efficient and reliable compilation technology that can easily be integrated in commercial HPF compilers. Thus new optimization techniques and language constructs are implemented and evaluated to optimize these applications and to push forward the development and the acceptance of HPF.
