The Argonne/GMD macros in FORTRAN for portable parallel programming and their implementation on the Intel iPSC/2

Abstract

A macro package for expressing message passing functions within parallel FORTRAN programs is presented. It makes the user program fully portable among all parallel computers where the macros are implemented. The implementation on the Intel iPSC/2 hypercube is discussed in more detail. New message passing primitives have been added to the iPSC/2 operating system, offering the user a broader functionality at no efficiency loss. The full macro set, using these primitives, works with the same performance as the original Intel primitives.
