Other HPF-2 Documents


The objectives of the High Performance Fortran Forum in 1995/1996 are:

  1. To produce, by November 1996, a High Performance Fortran version 2.0 including additional features that broaden the applicability of HPF, and whose implementation can exploit successful research experience.
  2. To provide correction, clarification, and interpretation of the current language standard, HPF 1.1.
  3. To encourage high quality implementations.

Scope of Work and Motivating Applications

The HPF Forum recommended several issues for consideration under the HPF-2 effort. A summary document presenting new capabilities and applications motiviating the capabilities was produced by the forum.
