Abstract:

The Force is a parallel programming language and methodology based on the shared memory multiprocessor model of computation. It is an extension to Fortran which allows a user to write a parallel program which is independent of the number of processes executing it and in which the management of processes is suppressed. Multiple instruction streams are managed as a group by operations which synchronized them and allocate work. The system is implemented on several machines as a macro preprocessor which expands Force programs into Fortran code for the host system. Keywords Parallel programming language, Shared memory, Multiprocessor, Macro Preprocessor.
