High Performance Fortran definition language
(HPF) A data parallel language extension to Fortran 90
which provides a portable programming interface for a wide variety of target platforms
. The original HPF language specification was produced by the High Performance Fortran Forum, a broad consortium of industry and academia, which met regularly throughout 1992 and early 1993. HPF compilers
are now available on most commonly-used computing systems, and users are beginning to gain first hand experience with this language. The Forum has continued to meet in order to address advanced topics.
