Abstract
  • Visual Fortran D (VFD) is a graphical tool to assist parallel programmers in specifying data distributions. Its target is Fortran D, an extension to Fortran77 or Fortran90 which supports data parallelism. VFD provides an intuitive framework where the user employs simple, fast graphical manipulations to specify how data is to be organized for distribution across multiple processors. The corresponding Fortran D statement is generated automatically from the graphical representation and displayed alongside it. Initial experimentation by users indicates that VFD improves the accuracy of data distributions. The ability to observe how a specification statement varies as the graphical representation is changed appears to make VFD a useful tool for teaching Fortran D concepts well.
