Conventions for Calling Local Subprograms

The default mapping of scalar dummy arguments and of scalar function results is such that the argument is replicated on each physical processor. These mappings may, optionally, be explicit in the interface, but any other explicit mapping is not HPF conforming.

As in the case of non-extrinsic subprograms, actual arguments may be mapped in any way; if necessary, they are copied automatically to correctly mapped temporaries before invocation of and after return from the extrinsic procedure.
