Massively parallel processors (MPPs) hold the promise of extremely high performance that, if realized, could be used to study problems of unprecedented size and complexity. One of the primary stumbling blocks to this promise has been the lack of tools to translate application codes to MPP form. In this paper we show how applications codes written in a subset of Fortran 77 called Fortran-P can be translated to achieve good performance on several massively parallel machines. This subset can… CONTINUE READING
