PREPARE - 6516

Keywords distributed memory computers, High Performance Fortran (HPF), MIMD architectures, programming environments


Start Date: 01 July 1992 / Duration: 42 months / Status: ongoing

[ contact / participants ]


a programming environment in which parallel programs can be developed or restructured in a machine-independent fashion

Objectives and Approach

PREPARE's environment will be based on three tightly integrated components:

The implementation of the parallelisation scheme has been started and the PREPARE intermediate representation is used by all engines of the compilation system. The Interactive Engine and Execution Monitor have been designed and implementation begun.

Some strategic alliances with computer manufacturers have been established. The first commercial outcome is expected near the end of 1994.
