Portland Group releases new PGI Visual Fortran version for Windows workstation

To launch applications on a distributed-memory Windows HPC Server 2008 cluster system

By CBR Staff Writer

Portland Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, has released PGI Visual Fortran (PVF) Release 9.0 for Windows workstations, servers and clusters. The new PVF 9.0 includes support to build, launch and debug Microsoft MPI (MSMPI) Fortran applications from within the Microsoft Visual Studio integrated development environment.

According to Portland Group, the PVF enhances the Visual Studio debugger by adding a Fortran language specific custom debug engine. The PVF debug engine supports debugging of single- and multi-thread, OpenMP, multi-thread MSMPI and hybrid MSMPI+OpenMP Fortran applications.

Portland Group said that the other new multi-process MSMPI capabilities in the new PVF 9.0 include Visual Studio property pages for configuring compile-time options, launching applications either locally on a workstation or on a distributed-memory Windows HPC Server 2008 cluster system, and debugging of programs running either locally or on a cluster.

The company added that other new features in the new PVF 9.0 include support for Intel Core i7 (Nehalem) and Six-Core AMD Opteron (Istanbul) processors, few incremental Fortran 2003 features, enhancements in serial debugging and disassembly speed, and an updated documentation and online help.

Reportedly, the PVF is compatible with both the current version of Visual Studio, Visual Studio 2008, and the previous version, Visual Studio 2005. The new PVF 9.0 also supports the PGI Accelerator programming model on x64 processor-based Linux systems incorporating NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPUs.
