The general objective of this project is to design an efficient parallel programming environment for assisting the user in writing and evaluating parallel programs, which involves enhancing of the functionality of FPT (Fortran Parallelizing Transformer, a state of art software provided by the University of Ghent) by creating a graphical programming environment, porting the code generation of FPT to the Siemens shared memory multiprocessor platform, using FPT to parallelise real life applications.
The following approaches were used to fulfill these objectives:
Although the Siemens machine had not been received until July 1996, progress was made on the design of programming environment for FPT on SUN workstations. As the standard approaches were used, it is expected that it will not be hard to convey the work to the Siemens machine. The results obtained by the end of June 1996 were as follows:
At the last stage of the project, the system developed will be used to exploit the parallelism of benchmark programs, such as SPEC95, to indicate the usefulness of the system by speed up results.
