Restructuring Fortran legacy applications for parallel computing in multiprocessors

  title={Restructuring Fortran legacy applications for parallel computing in multiprocessors},
  author={Fernando Tinetti and Mariano M{\'e}ndez and Armando De Giusti},
  journal={The Journal of Supercomputing},
As it is widely known, multi-core computers are broadly used these days, and automatic parallelization of sequential programs is still a challenge. In this context, we propose a set of code transformations to be applied automatically by a tool in order to transform sequential legacy systems into their parallel version. We implement these transformations by applying a lightweight source code analysis based on rewritable AST (Abstract Syntax Tree). Since it is not always possible to automatically… CONTINUE READING
