Elemental Reference of Up: Journal of Development Previous: Nested WHERE Statements


One proposal suggested a method for specifying the processor(s) to execute a given statement. The same proposal suggested a method for identifying data references which would be mapped to the same processor. In essence, both methods added new directives similar to INDEPENDENT (see Section ). Like INDEPENDENT, these directives provided information that a compiler might find useful in optimizing the program. Although the committee felt this was an important area to investigate, the proposals were rejected due to technical flaws.
