Encore Computer Corp, Marlborough, Massachusetts, is now offering a parallel Fortran package with its Encore Multimax system, enabling developers to implement both automatic and user directed parallelism in Fortran programs. The product consists of a parallel optimiser developed by Kuck & Associates, providing optimal execution of vector type operations, and scalar computations such as DO loops, array constructs and others. Also included is a parallel compiler originally developed by Green Hills Software: both components have been further developed by Encore. According to product marketing manager Jim Spoerl, the Encore’s shared memory architecture – multiple NS32000 processors under a parallel Unix – is very compatible with Fortran. Because Fortran provides a single, uniform address space, parallel extensions to Fortran can be easily mapped to the architecture, he said.
