Description. Returns the shape of the implementation-dependent
processor array.

Class. System inquiry
function.

Arguments. None

Result Type, Type Parameter, and Shape. The result is a default
integer array of rank one whose size is equal to the rank of the
implementation-dependent processor array.

Result Value. The value of the result is the shape of the
implementation-dependent processor array.

Example. In a computer with 2048 processors arranged in a
hypercube, the value of `PROCESSORS_SHAPE()` is
[2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2]. In a computer with 8192 processors arranged
in a 128 by 64 rectangular grid, the value of `PROCESSORS_SHAPE()`
is [128,64]. For a single processor workstation, the value of `PROCESSORS_SHAPE()` is [] (the size-zero array of rank one).
