SAL Home PARALLEL Programming Languages & Systems


High Performance Fortran (HPF) is the new high-level language for parallel programming on distributed memory architectures. It extends Fortran90, primarily with compiler directives which allow the user to guide the compiler to produce efficient parallel code. Unlike existing programming approaches for such machines, there is no need to program individual processors separately. Nor is there a need to insert message passing: the compiler does that when necessary.
