Prior to invocation of an HPF_SERIAL procedure from global HPF, the
behavior of the program will be as if the following actions take place:
- The processors are synchronized. All actions that logically precede the
call are completed.
- All actual arguments are remapped to the processor that will actually
execute the HPF_SERIAL procedure. The argument will appear to the
HPF_SERIAL procedure as a sequential argument.
The behavior of the HPF_SERIAL procedure will be as if it was executed
on only one processor. After the instance of the HPF_SERIAL procedure
invoked from global HPF has completed, the behavior will be as if the
- All processors are synchronized after the call.
- The original mappings of actual arguments are restored.
