Fortran Multi-processing Application Development
Writing programs that run on multiple processors and take maximum advantage of the hardware can be a complex task. Debugging and tuning these programs is even more difficult. The SGI® developer environment is specifically designed to facilitate the development of parallel programs. The ProDev Fortran bundle creates a powerful development environment:
This 64-bit ANSI Fortran 77 compiler is ideal for systems running IRIX® 6.x. It is compatible with VAX/VMS Fortran and supports Cray extensions. The 7.4 version of the MIPSpro Fortran 77 and Fortran 90 compilers now support the OpenMP 2.0 standard. Among the new features introduced in the OpenMP 2.0 specification are:
MIPSpro Fortran 90 Compiler
The full Fortran 2.0 specification can obtained from the OpenMP Web site at: http://www.openmp.org
For more information, read about the MIPSpro compilers.
The ProDev WorkShop Performance Analyzer utilizes a sampling paradigm that allows the collection of performance data at specified points during program execution and analysis of that data during the different phases of the program execution. The sampling paradigm is critical for very large programs as it allows for analysis of specific portions of the program and tuning of each portion individually. Combined, these tools provide a superb environment for facilitating the development of applications to run on MP systems. Whether you are an experienced MP application developer or are trying to write your first MP program, the SGI® MP development tools provide you with the functionality you need to take advantage of all of the power of your systems.
