Translation Schemes for the HPJava Parallel Programming Language
- 300 Downloads
The article describes the current status of the authors’ HPJava programming environment. HPJava is a parallel dialect of Java that imports Fortran-like arrays—in particular the distributed arrays of High Performance Fortran—as new data structures. The article discusses the translation scheme adopted in a recently developed translator for the HPJava language. It also gives an overview of the language.
