Goals and Scope Up: High Performance Fortran Language Previous: Contents


This document specifies the form and establishes the interpretation of programs expressed in the High Performance Fortran (HPF) language. It is designed as a set of extensions and modifications to the established International Standard for Fortran (ISO/IEC 1539:1991(E) and ANSI X3.198-1992), informally referred to as ``Fortran 90'' ([12]). Many sections of this document reference related sections of the Fortran 90 standard to facilitate its incorporation into new standards, should ISO and national standards committees deem that desirable.
