ADAPTOR (Automatic DAta Parallelism TranslatOR)
for OS2 2.x platform.
ADAPTOR (Automatic DAta Parallelism TranslatOR) was developed
by the German National Institute for Computer Science. It is a
tool that transforms data parallel programs written in Fortran with
array extensions, parallel loops and layout directives to parallel
programs with explicit message passing. ADAPTOR supports heterogeneous
workstation configuration via the use of PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine)
as the message passing model.
PVM is a software system that enables a collection of heterogeneous
computers to be used as a coherent and flexible concurrent computational
The individual computers may be shared- or local-memory multiprocessors,
vector supercomputers, specialized graphics engines, or scalar
workstations, that may be interconnected by a variety of networks,
such as ethernet, FDDI.
User programs written in C, C++ or Fortran access PVM through library
This port to OS2 platform uses my recently released port of PVM to
OS2 (you can find it on ftp-os2.cdrom.com in /pub/os2/2_x/program
as a file called pvm3os2b.zip). Than means, that you essentially need
to get PVM for OS2 in order to do anything sensible with this port
of ADAPTOR. PVM needs at least base package of TCP/IP v2.0 from IBM,
because its message passing mechanism is based on TCP/IP software
suite. For both ADAPTOR you need emx and f2c - excellent port of
Fortran to C translator by Roger Fearick (can be found in the same
directory as PVM). I also assume that you have two GNU file manipulation
utilities - mv and rm.
